Hating You Is Killing Me!

Your greatest enemy is your own anger and rage. Our life is fleeting; much like a vapor. James 4:14 says, “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” Harboring resentment, bitterness, ill-will, and anger only sucks the life out of you and the real question is do you really want to spend the brevity of your fleeting life holding on to an offense(s) that can easily be forgiven? Why would you drink poison and hopes the ‘other’ person (offender) will die? King David had the opportunity to kill Shimei in 2 Samuel 16:5-8 as it was the King’s right to do so but he chose the path of humility instead of ending his vitality. In verse 10 we find that David avoided feelings of anger, bitterness, and resentment by viewing the situation from the Lord’s perspective. I’ve heard it said, “Holding on to anger, bitterness, and resentment is like holding on to an anchor and jumping in the sea! If you don’t let it go, you will eventually drown.”
