The Opposite of Thanksgiving

The Opposite of Thanksgiving

November 19, 2017 – This week Pastor Mike Dorough leads us through a study on “The Opposite of Thanksgiving”. There’s plenty to complain about in this world and it’s so easy to do.  Complaining has been around since the dawn of time, but for believers we need to have an attitude of gratitude.  Our sins have been washed away by the blood of Christ…We have been pardoned, made clean through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.  As believers we must remember that we are to have a joy in our lives in knowing that we have a Lord that wants a relationship with us.  We need to make sure that a complaining attitude or countenance should not destroy our ability to effectively communicate the saving grace of King Jesus. 


  1. Complaining denies God’s power.
  2. Complaining destroys unity in the church.
  3. Complaining discredits our witness for Jesus.

Apply God’s Truth

  1. Is you life characterized more by complaining or thanksgiving?
  2. When was the last time you sat down and started listing blessings in your life?
  3. An attitude of gratitude is the best cure for a complaining spirit.
  4. Is your witness for Jesus discredited by a complaining spirit?
  5. Are you sure that your life has been set free from the chains that hold you down?
