Manufacturing Misery

Adrian Rogers

Ephesians 5:20-21 says, “Giving thanks always for all things unto God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.”

There was a preacher on a train one time who looked over and saw a well-dressed man and woman. She wore all kinds of jewelry and diamonds were dripping from her fingers. But she was complaining about everything—the train ride, the weather, the news, the food, and the service.

This preacher decided he would engage this couple in a conversation. He asked the man, “Sir, what is your business and what do you do?” The man told the minister. Then he asked, “Is this your wife?”

“Yes,” the man answered.

“Well, what does she do?”

“Oh, she’s in the manufacturing business.”

“What does she manufacture?”

He replied, “She manufactures her own unhappiness.”

There are a lot of people like that. They manufacture their misery because they fail to be grateful. Are you one?
