An Unforgiving Spirit

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you,
with all malice”
(Ephesians 4:31).

An unforgiving spirit is like acid, it destroys the vessel in which it is stored. It eats away at a person until there is such bitterness that it causes a person to speak things that they ought not to speak. It can causes a person to say slanderous things that often do permanent damage. In some cases it may even cause actions and create hurts and feelings that can never be undone.

The following verses of Scripture give the remedy for such occasions and if followed, an unforgiving and bitter spirit would never take root in our lives:

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).

“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye” (Colossians 3:13).

Let’s seek to be like Daniel, who in spite of everything, it is recorded “an excellent spirit was in him” (Daniel 6:3).
