Your Questions and Comments:

"And so it goes today. We are never satisfied. If we don't like our small house, and God gives us a larger house, we complain about cleaning it. If our car is old, and God gives us a newer one, we complain because the insurance goes up.  If we want to lose weight and God helps us do that, then we complain that our clothes don't fit and we have to buy new ones.  We want our church to grow, and when God adds to the church, we complain about having to park farther from the building. Don't you get tired of being around people who complain all the time ?  They seem to never be happy, to never be satisfied.

"It's sad that Christians are some of the greatest complainers.  If we would live with a grateful heart and praise God for our blessings, what a light we could be to a dark world."
