Quiet down

Jeff Weddle takes a sharp look at Christians and dealing with problems. Here's how his essay begins:
Everyone has problems and they are always happy to share. Christians, being people, are no different.

The primary difference between Christians talking about their problems and other people is that Christians will end their whine session with a short, out of context verse that makes both sides smile and say “have a nice day.”

Ouch. What's Jeff's conclusion? Though not literally the bottom line, it's really this:
People with serious problems that they want solved get quiet and listen. Then they do what they were told.
I recommend Jeff's whole article.
