Happy Monday dear friends! Today I am posting over at Woman to Woman for a Marriage Monday. Come on over and join us!
"Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:18
In life you will get hurt. It's inevitable. People do not always live up to our expectations. People do things we do not like. People hurt us. Even those we look up to, respect and love will sometimes hurt us.
Bearing a grudge only hurts you.
Let me say that again, bearing a grudge on someone will only hurt you. Holding on to bitterness, anger and disappointment is not good for you physically, mentally or spiritually. When we hold onto grudges, we are disconnecting ourselves from that person as well as God. God tells us in His Word not to seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone but to love.
When someone hurts you or lets you down, ask God to remove the disappointment and hurt and help you to love and forgive. Let's be people who forgive and move forward, not stay stagnant.
