Talk to a Pastor takes a break from answering prayer requests to write about unforgiveness

I know, many of you came here looking for guidance.  Well, here is something that will help you immensely if you take it to heart. Here it is:  Resentment is unforgiveness. Resentment is judgment. 

Some people say "I am a nice person." Then they wonder why everything they say or do backfires with others. If you resent others, they sense it, even though on the surface you are smiling. 

Moreover, if you are resentful, you are unforgiving and judgmental. That's what resentment is. Later it becomes tension and then bitterness. So let go of resentment. 

Many people want to be a better partner or parent, and want to live a life of principle. Well, if you do, then there is an emotion that you are going to have to give up: Resentment

Let go of resentment. If you don't know how I have resources to help you, especially the easy meditation.


Here are some verses about humility.

This is my favorite.

 " Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.   Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others."  Colossians 3:12-15:

What a wonderful translation! (The New Living Translation) 

Do you realize that every time you resent someone or secretly judge them, you are playing God?  Do you realize that resentment is the emotion of pride and unforgiveness?

You may think of yourself as a humble person, but if you allow yourself the indulgence of resentment, you are puffing up and looking down and condemning another.

Therefore, let go of resentment. Begin with your family, those closest to you. Make allowances for others.  That is the only way that you can be a friend on God.

Matthew 6: 15  "But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.


Mark 11: 25  And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”

Micah 6:8: "He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God."


Ephesians 4:2, 3: "With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."
