Please Don't Hold Unforgiveness!

Please Don't Hold Unforgiveness!


I knew of a "brother" who held unforgiveness.

His heart became full of bitterness.


When asked why he held this...

 against a certain person.

Having nothing to do with him.

 He was certain!


The reason for this grudge... 

Is probably "silly" to many.

When asked for a good reason. 

There wasn't any.


He said; "I don't hold any

kind of unforgiveness."

"What I do..."  "It's none of your business!"


"I don't hold a grudge and I

 want to be clear!"

"There are some people...

 I wish weren't here!"


Are there people in your life

who've been "shut out.?"

"Is this what being Christ' example is all about?


Living for Christ is not about who we "avoid."

If a life of Godliness is to be fully enjoyed.


We can make "excuses" to stay

 away from somebody.

This could be your brother. 

Neighbor.  Or anybody.


Christ gave his life and wants

us to follow his rules...

He knows all about us....  And is never fooled!


May your life be filled with

compassion for every soul.

In doing this...  You'll be made

complete and whole!


Discover true freedom.  Leave any

"grudges" in the past.

Enjoy true victory in Christ... 

And a peace that 'll last!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
