We complain. 

We grumble and whine.  

We are easily offended.


Failures are blamed on others.  

Discontentment about everything is the norm. 

Instead of accountability, we feel entitled.


The Word of God warns us about the negative consequences of complaining and ungratefulness. 

God wants us to always be thankful and to trust Him, no matter the circumstances.

James 1:17:  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
