Numbers 11:1-2 And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp. And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the LORD, the fire was quenched.
Two very brief and very basic lessons from this passage of scripture:
1. Complaining displeases God.
2. Prayer is the antidote for complaining.
We could all stand to do much less of the former and much more of the latter.
