LAVISH LOVE: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (I John 3:1 NIV)

Bitterness

More from “Bait of Satan” by John Bevere, who has much to say about taking offense and holding grudges.Image

“But ground will produce only what is planted in it. If we plant seeds of debt, unforgiveness and offense, another root will spring up in place of the love of God. It is called the root of bitterness.

“Francis Frangipane gave an excellent definition of bitterness: ‘Bitterness is unfulfilled revenge.’ It is produced when revenge is not satisfied to the degree we desire.”
