Has anyone ever really HURT YOU so much that you never forgot it? Well, when that happens you have ONE of TWO CHOICES to make. You either hold a GRUDGE or FORGIVEthem even though they don’t deserve it. In any case, getting BITTER or BETTER is all in how you handle it. It’s Pastor Phil of Harvest Chapel with a GOOD WORD from GOD’S WORD today.
Well, you can’t go through life without dealing with effect of HURTFUL WORDS causing emotional wounds either RECEIVED by you or GIVEN by you. But, when some people getOFFENDED or INSULTED they often hold out for an apology, that often never comes. So, what’s a person to do when it seems the insults never stop? Well, Leviticus 19:18 “Don’t seek REVENGE or hold a GRUDGE against one another, but love your neighbor as yourself.”
And, of course you know what Jesus in Matthew 6:14-15, “If you forgive a person when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you don’t forgive them, He won’t forgive you“. So, TODAY when you get HURT by a CRUEL WORD thrown at you, don’t get BITTER, get BETTER by choosing to be the FORGIVER.
It’s Pastor Phil saying, “I hope you’re not OFFENDED” by this “GOOD WORD FROM GOD’S WORD TODAY“. God bless.
