Whining . I am coming to a conclusion on what whining is.
Whining is energy taking. Whining cant be done with a smile! Whining stops us from seeing the things God is blessing. You cant put your whole heart into a request, into a chore if you are whining. Enthusiasm is the opposite.
I have been using our studies in enthusiasm to deal with the whining happening today.
Focus on what God wants you to be/do (happy – rejoice always, obey your parents, kind and loving towards others for this is the 2nd command – these are the heart issues for our kids at the moment)
Muster up a smile, pray, and change your heart!
