No complaint!

One of today's main diseases is complaining. Some people even believe that the quickest contact with a stranger is through shared complaint! Children find fault with parents and vice versa; the subordinate with his boss, the customer with the salesperson or craftsman, and vice versa. And almost everyone complains of the anonymous "they," which includes society, government, fate, and so on.

From the human point of view, our grievances may often seem justified. But the Science of Christ is not superficial. Pilate's question to Jesus is echoed by the student of this Science who asks, "What is truth?" We should aspire to say with Christ Jesus, "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth." John 18:37, 38. Testifying to truth includes regarding all complications—whether quite unimportant trifles or huge problems—as a test of our truthfulness and faithfulness.
