1 Corinthians 13:5 says, “Love ….. Thinks no evil.” The teeth of resentment cuts sharp and deep, and can lay waste to the life that God designed as a feast and a celebration of abundant living. Resentful souls draw the drapes and purposely block out the sunshine. Resentment is anger multiplied by time, and does not dissipate like anger, but lurks beneath the surface, undetected by any sonogram. Author Lewis B. Smedes wrote, “We make believe we are at peace while the furies rage within, beneath the surface. There, hidden, and suppressed, our hate opens the subterranean faucets of venom that will eventually infect all of our relationships in ways we cannot predict.” The Bible paints a detailed portrait of the malignant giant called resentment. It is a poison that affects the lives of millions in our society today. But Paul tells us that love keeps no books, no scoreboard, and makes no list of who to hate. Love remembers to forget! Chrysostom, the leader of the fourth-century church, once said, “a wrong done against love is like a spark that falls into the sea and is quenched.” How do you manifest such love when it is so unnatural? Galatians 5:22 reminds us that love is a characteristic of the fruit of the spirit. If you are a believer, you have at your disposal the ability to manifest that love, by learning to walk in the Spirit. If you are not a believer, then you need to turn to Christ, and find the peace that God offers you.
