See to it that no one falls short of God’s grace; that no root of resentment springs up and causes trouble.
- Hebrews 12:15
Resentments are tough.
They are almost always based in reality.
Resentment is the subtle reminder of what someone did, what you wish you had said or any unfinished business we have with people.
If we stay hurt and offended, the other person not only falls short of our grace, but we fall short of God’s grace.
Hurt and anger are legitimate responses to being mistreated, the failure to move on is the problem.
TODAY: Being angry isn’t the problem, staying angry is.
Continually pursue peace with everyone. Hebrews 12:14
