Be Content With What You Have

Adonai woke me up this morning with these words. It’s a message we would do well to hear. God gave us the innate ability to want things. To strive for more. To be all we can be. This is something that we must, of all things, have in balance.
The children of Israel walked in the wilderness 40 years on a journey that was supposed to take weeks. The main theory being because of the sin of the “Golden Calf”.
But in Hebrew thought more that one answer can be right. Has anyone noticed the amount of griping and complaining the Israelite s did? Our Heavenly Father makes it plain that you cannot be worshiping Him and complaining at the same time.

Deuteronomy 11:13 (NJB)
13 Depend on it: if you faithfully obey the commandments I enjoin on you today, loving Yahweh your God and serving him with all your heart and all your soul,

Parents know that complaining is not loving. Complaining is showing discontentment at the present circumstances. And blaming someone else for it.
The Israelite s complained about there circumstances. No water, no food, etc.,
After God had showed them mighty deeds, like splitting the Red Sea, and the 10 curses on Egypt. You would think they would have realized that all they really needed was God. I think that’s what he wanted them to realize.

Instead of bellyaching about everything.
