Will the whining ever stop?

Posted on 5/17/2017 by Greg Yoder

The only thing worse than a little kid whining all day long is a teenager or a young adult whining all day long. We’ve all heard them. I remember being on a airplane one time heading to Europe. Guess what happened? Yep, I sat right in front of a whiny seven-year-old. The only thing worse than that was the boy’s mother, who was ALSO whining about the whining. The funniest thing? The boy’s mother who said, “Why are you whining so much?” Guess what? Our kids are imitators. They imitate the bad AND the good. Wouldn’t it be great if our kids never saw the bad? I love what the Bible says, “Therefore be imitators of God....And walk in love” (Ephesians 5:1-2 ESV). Don’t just say it. Live it.
