One Thing: Grumbling vs. Thanks

"Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door."
James 5:9

There are so many ways that we can grumble. You can gripe and complain under your breath, to your best friend, to your mom, to a group, to a coworker -- even to yourself by dwelling on a "situation" longer than you ought.  Grumbling comes naturally, but it reflects an ungrateful heart.  We have so much to be thankful for!  Grumbling doesn't help anyone, but a thankful heart encourages, uplifts, and gives glory to God.

One Thing: Be thankful for the people in your life and focus on their good qualities instead of complaining about them.
