There are two kinds of people:
- those who make lists
- those who don’t
For example: lists that record tiny details of past offenses, to study and memorize.
The Lord lovingly convicted me of such a list recently.
I realized that whenever a certain person came to mind, I began to review my list. I was becoming a very “organized” bitter person, allowing a bitter root to grow in my heart.
I’ve repented of that list and started a new list to recite whenever that person comes to mind. The first thing on that list:
“See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.” Hebrews 12:15
Do you have any bitterness lists? Ask God to help you toss them out today and start a new list.
