Don’t Whine, Be Grateful

Do you have a lot to complain about?

 

1Th 5:18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Maybe we are not blessed like we should be because we are not grateful for what we already have.

Food for thought.

Some Jewish wisdom.

 

Give thanks always

 

 

Psa 140:13

Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.

Be blessed!

  1. A long time ago I was taught the four gates of speech. I wish I could remember their rightful author, though many may claim to be. When I remember these gates of speech, it pretty much stops the gossip, complaining and blaiming the mindless chatter. I usually get stuck at the third gate, and the fourth gate can be tricky. Before opening one’s mouth to speak, have the words pass through each of these four gates:
    1st Gate: IS IT TRUE?
    (Do you personally know it is so?)
    2nd Gate: IS IT KIND?
    (Without judgment so another might hear?)
    3rd Gate: IS IT NECESSARY?
    (Does it really need to be said?)
    4th Gate: IS IT THE RIGHT TIME AND PLACE?
    (Self explanatory.)

    Sometimes, having taken the time to go through all four gates, the third one come up again to be reconsidered.

  2. Thanks for posting this. I should view this video every week to remember to give thanks in all things.

  3. I NEED PRAYER IN THIS AREA… NOT ABOUT BEING THANKFUL… BUT I HAVE A HUSBAND THAT IS A HEAVY DRINKER AND DOES DRUGS.. AND HE HAS BEEN TO CHURCH AND HAVE HAD THE PASTOR LAY HANDS ON HIM AND CALL THAT DEMON OUT…HE WENT TO REHAB(2X) AND HE CONTINUES TO DO THESE THINGS … AND I HAVE PRAYED AND TALKED TO HIM AND HE WILL GO RIGHT BACK OUT AND HE IS DRAWN TO DO THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN….AND I NEED DELIVERANCE FROM FUSSING ABOUT IT…THANK YOU FOR YOUR WEBSITE… I HAVE PRAYED TO GOD AND ASKED FOR FORGIVNESS… PLEASE PRAY THAT GOD WILL DELIVER MY MOUTH… I DON’T WANT TO KEEP OFFENDING HIM… PLEASE PRAY FOR ME…

  4. Sometimes it best to move on. He needs to fight his own demons.
