Let go of resentment
Matthew 5:23 “Suppose you are offering your gift at the altar. And you remember that your brother has something against you.”
This scripture in Matthew goes on to say “If you remember someone has something against you leave your gift and go and make peace, then come back and offer your gift.” That tells me the process of making restitution in continued spiritual growth is a big one.
This is not always an easy step to take. To let go of all resentment. To give it to God and then go and make peace with the people you resent goes against everything we have ever done in life before. But it is necessary because if we don’t resentment will lead us back down that path of despair.
- Now you are at a turning point in your relationship with God and others how do you feel?
Prayer: God give me the strength to let go of resentment.
To trust you as I go to those I resent to repair relationships.
