You’re better off complaining about the world as you watch it through your 55″ Roku TV.

You’re better off complaining about leaders. After all, everything you hear about those powerful world leaders comes from what some guy at the gas station heard from someone else (and how could Bob at the Shell ever be wrong?)

You’re better off claiming you know the solution to the world’s problems, to the church’s problems, and to everyone else’s problems.

You’re better off ranting about the government and its decision making from the acreage of land that you own.

You’re better off claiming your foreign policy is more polished than any other politician that’s ever held an office (even though the only person you’ve debated on the topic is Bob at the Shell).

You’re just simply better off.

Isn’t it better watching bombs be dropped on another nation’s city streets through your TV and surround-sound system you got from the last stimulus check than in your backyard?

Isn’t it better to complain about your own leaders when there are those who are unafraid to commit mass genocide? I mean, praying for leaders just takes more effort than complaining anyways, doesn’t it?

Isn’t it better to believe you know the solutions to everyone else’s problems than to admit you don’t even have the answers to your own issues?

Isn’t it better to complain about the government than to be the government?

Isn’t it better to claim your foreign policy is the best, knowing it’ll never make it to the big time? You’d rather claim it’s the best then watch people die by it, that’s for sure.

Don’t you see? You’re just simply better off.

Christians should be praying, not complaining. But alas, what fun can come from that? (Ephesians 4:29; James 5:9; Romans 13:1-7).

It baffles me that Christians would be complaining during these times. Actually, it doesn’t. I have witnessed the last 2 years. We must put the energy to good use. You serve the one true God. The only being that can ever bring ultimate peace, justice, judgment, and (most importantly) love. God is not a God of violence. God is a God of justice, justness, and righteousness. We must do better. Not for our own soul’s sake, but for the millions of our brothers and sisters through the Lord in Eastern Europe. So…

You’re better off praying (I Thessalonians 5:16-18).

You’re better off trusting (Proverbs 3:5-6).

And you’re much better off hoping (Romans 15:13).
