Biblical Devotions for Child-Training; Week 3 Complaining

Romans 9:19-20 (NKJV)
You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who has resisted His will?” But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”

This bible verse was a lesson that has really stuck with my kids.  I told them to imagine drawing or paining a picture and when you were finished with it you were so proud of it.  You thought it was perfect.  It was the best piece of art you have ever created.  And then the picture started to talk to you and complain about how you drew it and the colors you chose.  How would that make you feel as the one who created the picture?  That is how it is for us to complain to God.  God created us in His image to do what He made us to do.  We each have our own individual purpose.  We need to be thankful for our abilities and understand that others may have been given different abilities.  Even when it is hard to understand we need to be thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV)
"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
