What are the consequences of Unforgiveness?

Post  stylz4christ on Fri 29 Aug 2008, 9:04 pm

Matthew 5:23-24

So if when you are offering your gift at the altar you there remember that your brother has any [grievance] against you,

Leave your gift at the altar and go. First make peace with your brother, and then come back and present your gift.
Unforgiveness - the deliberate decision to cling to resentment toward someone else and your right to get even any way you can. You hurt me, you must pay.

What an ungodly, unscriptural attitude! Yet it is painfully evident in the hearts of too many Christians. Uncover the truth behind this destructinve behavior.

You would be demonstrating the unwillingness to extend to others what the Lord has extended to you. It simply means saying with your attitude that you refuse to show the grace and forgiveness of Christ to anyone else.

One who holds unforgiveness plants roots of bitterness in your heart. As it grows you will before long have a whole crop of anger, malice and bitterness that will completely dominate you. If is not dealt with these bitter fruits will spoil every part of your life.

An unforgiving spirit makes it impossible to accomplish what the heavenly Father has in mind for you. How can you expect to grow in Christ while willfully allowing bitterness to erode your heart?

Don't fall for it. Please Ask God to help you release any unforgiveness you have, and be reconciled to your brothers and sisters without delay.
