Don’t Hold Your Breath

To all my grudge holders out there make note; before you hold a grudge against someone try holding a conversation-m……you might find out that it was a mere misunderstanding. Did you know that God has such a strong concern about grudges? In Leviticus 19:18 God specifically commanded , “Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself.” It’s human nature to hold an offense against those who have wronged us but if God who is totally righteous can forgive us, why do we find it difficult to forgive others? Fact is, “The anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:20). We do God no favors by trying to “help” Him right a bad situation through our vengeance. He does not need our anger. He needs our cooperation as we submit to doing things His way (Proverbs 3:5–6). And God’s way is always to forgive as He has forgiven us (Matthew 18:35; Ephesians 4:32). Forgiveness brings healing to our souls and allows God to build His strength and character into our lives as we allow Him to reign as our only God (Romans 8:29).
