Better not Bitter
Bitterness equals joylessness. Bitterness is more lethal than betrayal. Betrayal happens to you bitterness happens in you. Betrayal is what is done by others to you. Bitterness is what you do to yourself. Scripture talks about “the root of bitterness springing up and defiling.” You can recover from betrayal but bitterness is a different story. Many today have experienced betrayal by a mate, friend, co-worker or someone who was a confidant. A relationship turning sour is painful. While Jesus sat and ate with his disciples he made these remarks, “One of you will betray me.” Betray disguised in a kiss – what a blow. Yet Jesus was unfazed by it refusing to become bitter.
Stop being bitter and angry and mad at others.
Don't yell at one another or curse each other or ever be rude.
Ephesians 4:31 (CEV)
Bitter-free living, it doesn’t get any better than that. Forgive and cancel the debt. Remove all words of bitterness from future conversations. Stop nursing the grudge. Bitterness won’t leave on its own. You must send it away. Bitterness is overcome by the most powerful “ness” called forgiveness. May your days ahead be marked by joyfulness.
