Pictures With A Message



Grudges are like babies - the more you nurse them the bigger they grow!

If you have an axe to grind with someone be sure not to nurse it....we all experience from time to time hurts inflicted by others, and it's important to know how to deal with them.

Matthew 18:15 If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you...
How many of us struggle with this command? yet this is the route the Lord would place before us...it is the way of getting things in the open, which often resolves disputes and hurts before they they get out of hand.
Often when a person is hurt rather than tell the person causing it, it can become easier to nurse this "Baby" and tell friends about it....an axe to grind getting bigger and bigger, this is the stuff grudges are made of. Many of us have had to listen to friends complain about someone who has hurt them - When you ask "Have you told them" invariably the answer is "No"
But also how many of us have been the complainers ourselvers?

How many of us can say we have never done this? your mind is perhaps doing a mental inventory of the past, checking through classified files - painful, and yet if we want to get things right - it is well to look at the words of Jesus again in Matthew 18:15 also Proverbs 19:11 gives us insight into dealing with hurts - A mans wisdom gives him patience; it is his glory to overlook an offence.

May we all take to heart and obey what the scriptures teach us
