If we honestly got out of bed in the morning in a constant state of gratitude for every good thing in life, and we took the time to put that gratitude into words, we would not get anything else done. There is so much to be thankful for. In this world there is far more good than evil, yet the evil seems to capture so much of our attention, and therefore, we have so much complaining. Did you know that God hates complaining? When the Israelites were wandering in the desert and they complained loudly about their conditions, He sent snakes into their living quarters. Snakes! That’s what God thinks about complaining.
