Bitter or Better

Plain and simple.....it is hard to forgive someone. But one of the best gifts you can give to yourself and to someone else is forgiveness. It is not that you forget but you make a decision to forgive.

I heard Joyce Meyer say in a sermon a long time ago that she could be bitter or better, but she could not be both. Sometimes the greatest act of love is one which cost you something.

Not money, but the laying down of your pain so you can be better not bitter. Unforgiveness doesn't repair a wrong done, it will not put the spilled milk back in the bottle. We forgive so we can be healed from the wrong done to us. Forgiveness is like water quenching a fire. Fire is without discrimination it will destroy everything in its path.
If there is a person or a situation in which you were wronged, please make a decision right now to forgive.


Matthew 6:14
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Matthew 6:15
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
