    • How adamant is God about refusing His rest to complainers? (Hebrews 4:3-11)
    • How serious are we about resisting the urge to complain?
  4. Singing and shouting praise to the LORD protects us from complaining (v.1-5).
    • How can the singing and shouting of praise to God help protect our hearts?
    • Are you singing and shouting praise to God more often than you complain?
  5. Worship to God protects our hearts from complaining (v.6-7a).
