John Ortberg: Turning Grumblers into Thankers

Average Rating: Not rated  [see ratings/reviews]

Grumblers—every church has a few of them. They're the chronic complainers, the maestros of murmuring. Unfortunately, most of us preachers can also grumble with the best of them. As John Ortberg warns in this week's sermon—"The Great Gratitude Experiment"—"Ingratitude is not just a psychological problem …. It's a sin. It's a hallmark of a life opposed to God."

Ah, but thank God for this: Christ can unleash a spirit of thanksgiving in the hearts of our people—and in our hearts too!

Check out the whole sermon. It's chock full of inspirational ideas, illustrations, and quotes to help you prepare your own message on giving thanks.
