Let Go!

Those who cherish the spirit of settling scores are devious and dangerous. Their vengeful spirit is cloaked in robes of justice and their treasured bitterness explodes to harm others. The retaliation they seek arises, not necessarily from hurt they’ve experienced but rather, from their wounded pride and selfishness which find satisfaction in inflicting pain on anyone—real or imaginary—who’s hurt them.  “Love keeps no record of wrongs” (1 Corinthians13:5; NIV); it trusts God with the ledger of wrongs. A tit-for-tat spirit evidences that we haven’t truly experienced God’s healing, forgiveness, and love. For, hurt people hurt people, forgiven people forgive people, and loved people love people. Let go and let God!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
