There were some members of the congregation that were constantly coming to the pastor and complaining about the same problems over over again. One Sunday morning the pastor stepped into the pulpit and told a joke, the whole congregation roared in laughter, 😂 after a couple of minutes the pastor told the exact same joke and only a few people chuckled. 😁When he told the same joke for the third time no one even cracked a smile.😤
The preacher smiled and said ; you see your not going to laugh at the same joke over and over so why would you complain about the same problems over over.
Complaining about the same problems over and over won’t solve anything , it only waste your time and energy but instead of complaining about it we should pray and seek a solution to our problems, a problem solver is greatly appreciated over a complainer. 
Philippians 2:14 KJV
[14] Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
1 Peter 4:9 KJV
[9] Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
[10] Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
Murmur =
express one’s discontent about (someone or something) in a subdued manner. To complain , moan, mutter, grumble.
The Bible has a lot to say about complaining and I’ve heard it said before ( you keep complaining and I’ll give you something to complain about ) lol
That’s because a lot of what we complain about isn’t worth listening to and doesn’t solve anything Instead let’s follow this verse today and see what a difference it makes 
Because it does in fact say that it’s concerning you .
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 KJV
[16] Rejoice evermore. [17] Pray without ceasing. [18] In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
🎶 Dear Lord help me not to grumble or complain about the tough rows I may have hoed because I’m drinking from my saucer my cup has over flowed 🎶
