Word 4 Today August 17, 2011

THE BIG PAYBACK

Ever notice how getting even with people does absolutely no good?  Resentments, bitterness, and trying to get even with people just does not work.  Instead of making us feel better, it just leaves us even more frustrated and unsatisfied.  We may do some damage to our enemies, but I guarantee you we cause more damage to ourselves.

Revenge and hate can only cause frustration and conflict and totally destroys our peace of mind.  In every situation we must consciously choose to forgive and forget, otherwise we will become like the attitude we harbor.  If we hate, we will become hateful.  If we resent, we will become resentful.  If we do not like others, they will not like us.  Do not poison your thoughts with your actions.  The only person you really hurt is yourself.  “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”  Matthew 6:14-15

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Lord I pray that I may be a blessing to all I come into contact with today.  Sometimes the best blessing I can give is to forgive and forget.  Maybe I can let go of the little irritations life brings and stop being so into myself.  I can realize that maybe the person I have conflict with, is going through some trial themselves and maybe I can do something to help them through it.
