Have you ever had a fall out with a family member and didn’t speak to them for a long time? You don’t really know why or understand what has happened to your relationship with someone you love. Rejection from a family member can be devastating and wreak havoc in our life making us feel abandoned. We cannot control what decisions other people make but we can control our attitudes and our heart. We should pray for a forgiving heart because Christ forgave us. Bitterness is a terrible thing that can poison our life.
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
