Grumbling never travels alone. It can become a domino effect and lead us to other sins.

Our goal as biblical counselors is to help form habits in the counselee that will last long after we’re done meeting with them.
God’s commandments are not burdensome to believers because we love Him, are convinced He loves us, are empowered by Him to obey, and forgiven by Him when we don’t.
Truth in Love 334
Biblical hope is fixed on the foundation of God’s character and God’s promises. That is a solid rock, a certainty where we can place our confidence.
Prayerlessness is sin, as is the self-sufficient heart attitude of independence that feeds it.
When we desire to grow in Christlikeness and bring God glory in the process, we position ourselves for contentment in every area of our life.
We have opportunities every day to move towards the goal of Christlikeness and pleasing God in all the activities of our day.

The power to accomplish the work that God wants you to do is not in your cleverness or giftedness but rather in your faithfulness to deliver God’s counsel to His people.
We must learn to diligently hide God’s Word in our hearts, to be watchful in prayer, and to stay in the protection of the church.

God regularly and predominantly uses our habits to bring about greater spiritual maturity.
