Hello, I am going through "Lord, Change My Attitude" by James MacDonald & Barb Peil.
I have read the introduction as requested by the author. I am now into chapter 1: Replace a Complaining Attitude.

I feel that the introduction sets the mood for the study. Goes through the Isrealites going out of Egypt to the promised land and that they do a lot of complaining and how God feels about their complaining and He actions because of the complaining.

It teaches that if we are complaining then we are not being obedient to God's will for us, therefore we can not receive the blessings He has for us.

There are several examples of this in the plight of the Isrealites leaving Egypt and going to the promised land. They send some spies to the promised land to see what is there as well as if they will need to fight any current peoples of the land. Some of the spies come back and say that the people currently there are gaints, and too many for them to defeat and claim the promised land as theirs, which God has told them is theirs. Two of the men come back and report that the land is flowing with milk and honey and that God says its theirs for the taking. The people take a vote (so to speak) and decide that they will not be able to defeat those that currently live there and so they are defeated. Therefore God tells the people that they will have to wonder the desert for 40 years until all those over 20 die in the desert, they will not be allowed into the promised land. There are two exceptions and those are the spies that come back and report their faith in God to deliver them to the promised land.

This is the background for the rest of the book according to the author. Once I have finished Chapter 1 I will post my thoughts.
