Do everything without complaining or arguing. (Philippians 2:14)
Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. (James 5:9)
It’s time again for our annual NO GRUMBLING WEEK here on GUWG.
I woke up this morning in a rather foul mood, feeling overwhelmed by all the work I have to do this week. Here’s what came out of my mouth:
Maybe you’re feeling a bit like me. If so, please join me in reciting the following official GUWG …
NO GRUMBLING WEEK PLEDGE
I, [state your name],
do hereby solemnly vow,
that every time I feel
a grumble coming on this week,
I will ask God to help me
suppress said grumble,
pinch myself hard,
and recite one of the
above verses instead.
Thank you for your participation in this important endeavor.
(Update: It’s 7:12 a.m. and I have already pinched myself 4 times. Yikes.)
