March 26–One-Anothering – Do Not Bear Grudges


Grudge not one against another, brethren,… James 5:9 [KJV]

  • A “One Anothering” Thought
    Bear Grudges means:
    to hold onto a feeling of ill will or resentment
    to continue resenting the good fortune of another; to have a begrudging attitude
    to be reluctant or unwilling to submit to forgiveness

A grudge is a feeling of resentment harbored because of some real or fancied wrong.
Scripture says we are not to harbor grudges against anyone, but especially not against our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Today examine yourself to see if you might be bearing a grudge against someone. If you are, pray and ask God to remove this grudging attitude from you and replace it with His love.
Tell Him you want to be cleansed from the begrudging attitude so you can walk in His love and forgiveness, and so be obedient to His word.

Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:18 [KJV]
