Jon Bloom’s post last week:

“Grumbling is a symptom of a myopic soul. Selfishness has caused tunnel vision and has fixated on a craving(s). Grumbling is evidence of soul-vision impairment. Gratitude is a symptom of a healthy, expansive soul. The gospel of grace has given it panoramic vision, allowing it to see that this grace will be sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9) to meet every need (Philippians 4:19).

Grumbling is the accent of hell’s language… Gratitude is the accent of the language of heaven.”
