ABC’s of the Word ~ Grumbling

This week we are up to the letter G for ABC’s of the Word. Here are the verses on NOT grumbling I’d like to share…

John 6:43 ~  “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.

I Corinthians 10:10 ~ “And do not grumble, as some of them did – and were killed by the destroying angel.”

James 5:9 ~ “Don’t grumble against each other brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door.”

I Peter 4:9 ~ “Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”

Ouch! These verses hit home. When I decided on using the theme of grumbling this week for G I couldn’t help but think of ole Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. So stop grumbling (I’m telling myself that, too) and don’t be Grumpy!!

  1. OUCH Ellen B.!
    I’m saying that with a smile. It’s so much easier to be a grumbler then an encourager…what’s that about!
    Ah, but it’s so good to be reminded. Have a perfect grumble free day!

    P.S. I love that artist! I’ve always wanted to buy a few of his peices, but have no where to put them.

  2. Good morning, Ellen — the verses definitely hit home! I was on the verge to doing some grumbling when I came to your blog. What timing, eh?!

    Thanks bunches for the spiritual admonition today.

    Hugs!

  3. Great verses to remind us not to grumble! I’m appalled at myself because I’m finding that I grumble waaaayyy too much, even though I have much to be happy about and thankful for! I think I must just be spoiled and when something doesn’t suit me or go my way, then I’m just grumbling and complaining. I grew up with a mother who never grumbled or complained, no matter how hard things got, she just smiled and dug in, and just took it all in stride. Oh to be more like her, which is more Christlike, after all.

  4. That’s what I always say to my hubbs!!!
    He can drive me crazy doing that!
    I cann ever help getting soooooooooo mad at him for that!
    I guess it’s something he can’t help doing too? Ahhhhh!
