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
3 I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “See, the tent of God is among humans! He will make his home with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them, and he will be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There won’t be death anymore. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared.”
I came across this song by The Melbourne Veterans Band a while ago and have always thought what a great testimony. You notice in the first half of verses everything refers to our ‘Earthly World’ and the second half he refers to ‘a Better World’ where men are saved to God and eternity
Unfortunately I have been unable to get the words of the song
