Complaining Affects Your Familyby Rick Johnson — 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Before one complains at work, church or school, they first do so in their family. People don’t initially complain publicly, but privately. It happens behind closed doors to those closest to them; their loved ones get the brunt of it.
This is clearly referenced in the Bible. After being in difficult circumstances wandering in a desert because of their unbelief the Jews began to complain. It’s interesting where it started. God’s Word states that they “…murmured in their tents…” (Psalm 106:25). Because they were nomads they traveled and lived in tents. So their murmuring was poured on those closest to them, their family. They “murmured” about God and expressed their discontentment. Murmuring is a synonym in the Bible for griping or complaining.
