I LIKE SCARLET O’HARA’S ATTITUDE, “I’ll think about it tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.” Just sweep this thing under the rug until tomorrow, that’s when you’ll deal with it, a later date. That dust you’ve swept under the rug won’t cause any problems. Forget that you’ve made a huge mess of things, forget that you’ve caused a ton of division and strife with your selfish desires, forget that you’ve hurt feelings and destroyed lives; forget all those things. Or not. Maybe there’s a better way? How about you swallow your pride and in humility, bow down and ask for forgiveness? The longer you let division and bitterness boil, the harder the heart gets. Typically, these things left to themselves get worse, not better. Boiling water will eventually evaporate. God is a NOW God. TODAY is the day of salvation! “Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:12-13 Don’t even let the sun go down while you’re still angry! Don’t allow bitterness to defile you or anyone else. Live in humility, I don’t care whose fault it is. Seek forgiveness and in the process of seeking forgiveness, you will find peace.
