Resentment

If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone (Matthew 18:15; NRSV).

So then, putting away all falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbours, for we are members of one another. Be angry but do not sin (Ephesians 4:25-6; NRSV).

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).


Lord,
How swiftly
Our unexpressed resentment
Turns to bitterness,
Dislike,
Anger,
Avoidance
And fear!

Instead,
Please help us
To speak the truth
In love,
So we grow
More and more
Like you,
In every way.

Amen.

I'd love to hear from you...
