Grudges


I heard a conversation a few days ago. One person felt the other had upset them and had held on
to this grudge for two weeks, before venting their anger. If they had just turned round and said
something at the time, the matter would have been settled. No, they had turned it over and over in
their mind for days. It’s so easy to feel slighted, simply by taking what someone has said, in all
innocence, the wrong way. The perceived hurt, anger and bitterness had festered inside, causing
pain and anger. My challenge for you today, is, if you feel someone has hurt you, done something
you do not agree with, said something that has caused you to take offence, then make today the
day you get in touch with them, talk to them. Explain how you feel, and stop that annoyance
causing you to feel stressed.


Leviticus 19:17-19
Don’t hold grudges. On the other hand, it’s wrong not to correct someone who needs correcting.
Stop being angry and don’t try to take revenge. I am the Lord, and I command you to love others
as much as you love yourself
