The world doesn’t think so, but complaining is a grievous sin. Today’s devotional focused on Israel in the desert, Ex 17.7. And how we do the same thing.

Frequency of complaint. “Is God among us?” has been uttered throughout history. Saints frequently act like life in the Lord is a holiday cruise. To ignore the place of suffering, results in grumbling. Should we marvel if special seasons of blessing are followed by challenging demands for trust?

Focus question: What are my expectations of God? What do I think he should do for me?
