Curses #5 - Unforgiveness - Repairedgreenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread
I don't think I need to say much about the need to forgive, and the effects unforgiveness can have on an individual. It leads to anger and bitterness. It puts a wall between the individual and God that won't permit true intimacy. In the right situations unforgiveness can affect an entire family or community, and can affect a person's mental, physical, or spiritual health.
What are signs of unforgiveness?
1. A need to justify or defend oneself.
2. A desire for revenge and/or compensation.
3. An inability to stop thinking or talking about the circumstances that caused the offense.
As long as we harbor an offense we bring upon ourselves a curse of a special nature. This is a curse in a class all its own.
In what areas do you see these signs of unforgiveness?
End of lessons.
