Sometimes, the weight you have to lose isn’t on your body but on your mind. The most important places to keep clean are your heart and mind. Refuse to allow resentment, bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, cynicism find expressions in you and through you.
Unforgiveness is like holding the door open for the devil; It’s like drinking poison and hoping it would hurt someone else. To be unforgiving is to allow circumstances rob you of your joy in life.
Forgiving others isn’t so much about the one who offended you; it’s about your own life; it’s for your benefit not theirs. Don’t allow his anger become your anger. Don’t waste your words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes, the most powerful thing that you can do is to say nothing at all.
People are different. If the doctor treated all patients with the same medicine, most of them would have died, so do not treat all people in the same way. Let God’s essence within you flow out like a stream as you relate with others in love.
