Is it Yours?
"You are not responsible for someone else's bitterness.'
This was one of the most helpful and healing things said to me this past year.
When we sin against another, we need seek to make it right.
If we haven't sinned against another yet there is discord, we need humble ourselves in an effort to make peace.
But, either way, we are not responsible for the choices or responses others.
If bitterness is poisoning another's heart and threatening to stain your own, don't carry a weight that isn't yours.
Surrender and trust your heart with Jesus - that's the one you will be held accountable for in the end.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns.
