The scripture reading is also about being humble and doing things for others rather than for yourself. Furthermore, it says to do everything without grumbling.
I find that this is very hard to do - and I think it's getting harder and harder in today's age of instant gratification. If we want to know something - it's as simple as typing in a question on Google. If we want to buy something - it can be found somewhere online! My college friend Jessica is going to quit teaching and try day care instead - she is discouraged by the children she has to work with. Only a handful are respectful and obedient - the rest are constantly talking and moving and doing what they want to do. But what can we do to change our children? Part of it is TV and video games - they only do something for snippets of time rather then sitting and learning to play a game.
I also find I complain about one aspect of work - but I have a good job that provides -
I think everyone can use the reminder time to time to do things for others and to work without grumbling - but at the same time, easier said then done!
