Give it up!

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
do so.

Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. – Luke 11:4 (NIV)
