Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23
03/31/09 Unforgiveness is like a cancer that eats away at you from the inside out. It hardens the heart that Jesus wants to be soft and pliable so that He can mold it to look like His own. Offering forgiveness to another benefits you by releasing bitterness from your heart. Letting go of bitterness also takes away tension and anxiety and leaves us able to be shaped by the hands of our Savior. And we have a wonderful example of forgiveness in Jesus, Himself, Who asked the Father to forgive those who were actively participating in His death. Who do you need to forgive? Take a moment to think. Don’t let the smallest offense eat away at your heart. And don’t wait another moment. Just do it. Allow your heart to soften in the Lord’s hands.
