Last night I went to see the movie “The Shack” last night with some friends. During the movie, I felt some of my own hate boil up. Anger I had been harboring against someone for something they said. The bad part, it is someone who does not even know me. The other thing that happened is I found myself forgiving this person. Now through God’s grace, I have more peace. It is easy to harbor resentment, letting go can be hard. However, letting go is necessary because the only one hurt is you. I do believe this will be the subject of more in depth over the weekend. Hate, anger, they are worse for you because chances are the other person does not care. Accept /god’s grace and forgive.
31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
