Give Thanks Not Grumbles

It’s THANKS-O-RAMA 2016 here on GUWG, where from now through Thanksgiving we’re focusing on giving God thanks for his awesome, astounding, astonishing blessings.

Here’s a pair of verses I should force myself to repeat every 0.3 seconds:

Don’t grumble against each other, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. (James 5:9)

Do everything without complaining or arguing. (Philippians 2:14)

Basically, grumbling is the opposite of thankfulness. Here’s another verse for your consideration:

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

When are we supposed to rejoice? Always.

When should we pray? Continually.

What should we thank God for? Everything.
