The truth? Holding onto anger, bitterness and hurt will slowly destroy your life. Living with unforgiveness in your heart hurts your walk with God, your relationships with others, and your own emotional health.
Unforgiveness produces damaging emotion and damaging emotions must be displaced by forgiveness. Unforgiveness is the refusal to release someone free from the obligation that resulted when they injured you. So often, behind the things we struggle with is unresolved hurt. To experience the freedom Christ offered in increasing measure, we must learn to live with forgiveness.
Open God’s Word to Ephesians 4 to recognize “The Cost of Unforgiveness”. Be sure to stay to the end, as we will also learn about the blessing of forgiveness!
