Do Yourself a Favor

As we hold on to grudges
and resentment,
they have a way of gaining control over our lives.
They also grow out of proportion.
Resentment can materialize in many ways;
physically and emotionally making us sick.
 
It can cut off communication and isolate us
from family and friends.
 
The Message
Don’t be quick to fly off the handle.
Anger boomerangs.
 
NLT
Stop being angry.
Turn from your rage.
Do not lose your temper-
it only leads to harm.
 
Do yourself a favor!
Forgive!
 
Let go of anger, bitterness and unforgiveness.
 
Do this for yourself.
It may seem impossible, but nothing is impossible for God.
 
NLT
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander,
as well as all types of evil behavior.
Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another,
just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
 
God demonstrated His great love for toward us by sending Christ
to die for us even while we were still sinners.
Put away all your anger, resentment and bitterness
and love one another just as God did for us.
