This is taken from my desk calendar (Todd Wilson’s You ‘da Dad Daily Calendar) for today – Monday May 16th. Obviously it should apply to anyone though, not only a father.
Bitterness kills relationships.
If you’ve been holding something
against one of your children or your wife,
would you give it up?
Whether they ask forgiveness or not,
give it up.
I know you’re hurt and rightfully
so…but give it up.
Now pray and ask God to help you
Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. – Luke 11:4 (NIV)
