Bitter or Better

Life is full of injustice and undeserved hurt. These ill-treatments can make us bitter or better. From Joseph’s experience we learn that, we’ll be BITTER when we focus on the “I”—ourselves and the hurt we’ve unjustly suffered. But we’ll be BETTER if we view things from the perspective of “E”—eternity or God’s eternal plan (Genesis 40:14, 15; 45:5-8; 50:20).  When we’re unfairly treated, let’s yield to God’s plan. He can squeeze our bitter lemons of life into nourishing lemonade; He can cause the bitter pills forced down our throats to make us better people. To cherish bitterness, anger, or hate is to be faithless, miserable, and a loser. You’re much better than that. Forgive and move on!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
