acquaintances, friends and families,
we often find ourselves in conflict.
There are just certain words, habits,
or comments that irritate us.
Irritations can lead to
unforgiveness. As Christians,
unforgiveness is an unacceptable
quality. As Christians, we simply
keep our feelings inside.
Unforgiveness damages us as a person,
creates self-bondage, carries guilt,
self anger and rebellion against God.
Unforgiveness leads to
destruction of our prayer life,
worship, witnessing, giving, blocks
spiritual growth, and often leads to
physical problems. When irritations
cause us to be unforgiving, we must
quickly acknowledge it, take
responsibility for it, confess it to
God, and ask Him to forgive us. We
must ask God to enable us to
forgive. We should pray for the
person that we havenít forgiven and
seek out what we can do for them.
Evidence that we have forgiven
the person comes when we vow we wonít
feel the same way toward them. We
must have a new attitude toward
them. We need to accept the person
the way they are and understand why
they act the way they act. It is
only through true forgiveness that
irritations are dissolved and peace is
restored. We are no longer irritated
when we have Godís peace.
