  • Grumbling and grouching are displeasing to God

    Grumbling!

    We all do it. You name it and we grumble about it. Our favorite subject is the weather. But it is a sin to grumble against God.

    The Apostle Paul told the Philippians Christians to “do all things without grumbling or disputing” (3:14). He was thinking of the children of Israel when they left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land. He said in I Corinthians they grumbled and were destroyed.

    God is displeased when His children grumble. Why?
