Have you ever heard the saying that bitterness is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die? It sounds crazy, doesn't it? But it's true. The problem with bitterness is it grows and it controls and it consumes. Bitterness doesn't hurt anyone else more than it does the one who harbors it in his heart. Learn how to let go of bitterness and give the same gift of forgiveness to someone else, that God has so freely given to you.
