To resent you have to do it all day, every day, all the time to commit.
To carry resentment in your heart, let it fester, and soon it will grow.
It may destroy your crops or fruit, but be sure in your life it will show.
Others the way to Christ by how you live, and God Himself will know,
That your righteousness is but filthy rags, if you fail to forgive anyone.
Rich or poor, agnostic or heathen, Jesus said if he would find but one
He would go into the fields, find that lost sheep and bid him come in.
Every person has that chance for the Saviour to forgive him his sin.
When you harbour resentment, your walk with God will not grow.
If you remember offences, hoard them in your heart you will show..
Bitterness to others when you talk, it will stunt your Christian walk.
Health problems will pursue you if you spread gossip when you talk.
Until you decide to give your resentment up to God and say, “Lord,
I do not want this poison living inside me this way please forgive me.
For what I pour out on others will destroy this vessel, and I will be
Rotting from deep within me; and Satan will start to exult with glee.
I will become a slave to bitterness and hate and I will never be free.
If you forgive and forget, even if the offended person does not forgive you.
You will feel such release when you forgive, it is the greatest thing to do.
God desires that you rid all vengeance heaped on people from your life.
It is the only way to let His love shine through; it will release all strife.
To forgive is like removing a boulder from your own shoulder, your life.
You will learn, as you grow closer to God, and as you get older and mature.
God’s way is the only way, don’t run from Him and to hide, make a detour.
God delights in helping us, His Spirit also works deep inside and will abide.
Carry resentment in your heart, it destroys others but it also destroys you
- Matthew 6:14 ~ For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins your Father will not forgive your sin.
- Mark 11:25 ~ And when you stand praying , if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
- I John 1:5 ~ This is the message we have heard from Him, and declare to you. God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on LOVE, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
