Be aware, don’t allow Grudges to hold back God’s Blessings Over your life !
Matt. 5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
Matt. 5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Matt. 5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Matt. 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Grudge Match
•Many times bitterness causes us to hold grudges. When we have ought against our brethren, we should go to them and get it straight rather than hold on to it. Matt. 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
•Holding in grudges changes our behavior and our perception of others. We tend to treat people differently because whatever caused the grudge, we desire to avoid. This brings about walls and barriers so that people can't hurt us. Prov. 19:11 Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
•But many times we shun the good folks and those that that are good for us because we have built walls that block access to us. We will never stop needing people in this life, but when we have barriers created because of past hurts, we harm all of our future relationships. Lev. 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.
