Life is too short to hold grudges against anyone and or punish people because they wronged us. We’ve got to learn to always say our mind in a polite manner, in the way others would understand us and how we feel or felt, so they’d know where and how they wronged us, and further apologize to us sincerely. It gives them room to make amends too when told how their action made us feel. We should learn to stop bottling the wrong done to us by others to punish them for the innocent mistake(s) they sometimes make, no one is perfect and no one is a mind reader you know!
You see, life is simple, but we human make it complicated for ourselves and for others most of the time. I know some people find it difficult to apologize, I know some people take time to change. But the Creator has taught us to extend grace to others. Again, sometimes, some find it difficult to forgive and crave vengeance. But the Creator made us understand that vengeance is the Creator’s He’ll repay. Vengeance isn’t ours, but the LORD’S.
Life is guided by principles. Principle of extending forgiveness to others so we also can be forgiven by our Creator. It is a principle, yes, a simple principle at that! But we all ignore these simple principles most of the time because we are living and are led by our emotions and in the process, allowing our emotions make decisions for us and controlling us.
We need to learn this principle and always get things off our chest, because even you who’s holding a grudge against someone, the next minute might be your last, you might not have a second chance or the Grace to quickly make your wrongs right. So why punish your own self and others? Don’t you want to be happy and be at peace with yourself knowing your heart is free from all sort of grudges and malice? Truth is, grudges leaves us hurting and keep us in pain. But once we let it out, we feel that heavy burden being lifted off our shoulders, and then we feel at peace within ourself and feel at peace with that person in question who wronged us too.
How would you feel when you receive or wake up to the sad news that someone with whom you’ve been keeping malice or angry with just passed? Trust me, you’ll live in guilt the rest of your life. You would wish to see that person for the last time to tell them how sorry you are, that you’ve forgiven them and give them a great big hug. Let this not be you and I. Life is fragile, let’s make life simple for ourselves and others. No time really, our time here is short; very short.
I know we all fail sometimes, but may the Creator help us do the right thing at all times. His grace is sufficient for us all and His strength is made perfect in weakness. Let’s not get weary in well doing, as our reward awaits us all, and it all begins right here on earth before we transit from this temporary life.
I hope these words blesses someone this morning.
