MURMUR NOT

During the long and weary period of forty years in which the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness before entering the Promised Land, they often murmured against Moses, the servant of God. Despite the fact that they had experienced the Almighty's presence and power when they passed through the Red Sea and were refreshed by water from the rock and fed with manna and quails, still they murmured and wished that they were back in Egypt. Because of their mental blindness, dullness, and disobedience to God's commands, they themselves delayed their entrance into the Promised Land.

Murmuring, or grumbling, is the result of discontent or dissatisfaction with one's condition in life. It is not always an open, outspoken complaining, but usually a low muttering or half-suppressed expression of dissatisfaction with a person or a condition. Such an attitude is to be avoided, for it often leads to much suffering; and Christian Science shows us how to overcome this evil practice.
