DON’T GRUMBLE

There isn’t a day that goes by that someone doesn’t complain about another person. We hear it every day. Sometimes it is even us who is doing the grumbling. Why do we grumble? Why do we judge? What does that accomplish? Grumbling only makes us look bad because it shows we are a complainer. It shows we are lazy because we don’t want to do anything about it but complain. It shows that we don’t care how we look or that we will one day be judged for our grumbling.

James 5:9 “Don’t grumble about each other, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. For look—the Judge is standing at the door!” (NLT)

Dear Lord, help us not to grumble. Help us not to complain. Help us to live for You and want to help others rather than talk about them. We can’t serve You if we are busy grumbling about our friends, our co-workers and the other people around us. Help us to be a positive example to others and stop our grumbling and encourage others to do the same. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

When we grumble about one another, we aren’t doing anyone any favors – not even ourselves.

When we grumble about others, we may think we are making them look bad but we are really making us look worse.

Grumbling and complaining about people only leads to more grumbling and complaining…and nothing gets done.

A grumbling person comes across as a negative one – even when he or she tries to say it in the nicest way.

God will judge us in all things we do – even in our grumbling. We can stop the grumbling today.

Ephesians 4:32 “Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.” (NLT)
