Every Complaint is an Opportunity

What if you listened to every complaint from your mate, friend or neighbor, as an opportunity for growth and change? What if you looked beyond your ruffled feelings to the need being expressed by the person complaining? You have an incredible opportunity to minister to them, to meet their need, to show them compassion and caring. The next time you face a complaint, listen with new ears for the need being expressed and be a hero. Meet the need!
