Doctors believe that resentment affords people a sense of superiority over he people they resent. It gives them a way (an unhealthy way) to place themselves a little higher in the pecking order. Resentment places an angry individual in the judge’s seat. Someone has said that our fantasies of resentment bring about neurotic pleasure and religious pride. With this in mind, how do we overcome resentment? Let me suggest 5 steps to overcoming resentment in your life.1. Think it Through – Philippians 4:8 reminds us to think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and good report. It must start with readjusting our thinking about life.2. Write it Down – Philippians 3:13-14 reminds us that we must forget those things with are behind and press forward. Writing things down, often gives us the liberty to express things clearly, so that we can move on from the emotion of the event.3. Work it out. This can be just some simple physical exercise. We are told in Philippians 3:13-14 to “press toward the mark” The idea of press is that of exerting energy to obtain a goal. Get busy with the process of moving on in life.4. Talk it over – Here there are two people to talk to. First, God! He alone can resolve the issues of the heart (Romans 12:19). We must take all our issues and wrongs committed against us and allow God to work them through. Second is the source of the offense (Matthew 18:5). We are responsible before God to always be ready and willing to assume the hurts and let go of our right to demand our way. 5. Give it up – Always remember that we need to learn to CHOOSE to move forward in forgiveness (Matthew 18:21-22) There is only one portion of the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6 that is repeated, and it is the part about forgiveness.These 5 steps will help you learn to overcome the struggle you are having with resentment. But observe that it is work, and not easy, so your relationship with Jesus Christ is essential in this process.
