Unforgiveness in My Heart by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/11/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It’s possible to live with unforgiveness for so long that we become blind to its presence.

“I don’t hold any grudges. I’m good.”

Nancy: Have you ever been hurt? Has anyone lied to you?

“Yeah, and I wouldn’t mind if something bad happened to them.”

Nancy: Have you ever been treated unfairly by an employer?

“Every time I think about it, I still feel angry.”

Nancy: Maybe you’ve been cheated in a business deal.

“I really want to get back at them!”

Nancy: Or perhaps you’ve been slandered or falsely accused?

“I can thank God for every situation—except that one.”

Nancy: If you respond to past hurts with those kinds of statements, maybe you haven’t truly forgiven. But you can. God is willing to forgive us for so much, and He can give us the strength to forgive others. Would you choose to release those who have hurt you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
