BITTERNESS (Anger, Hatred, Joylessness)
DANGERS OF BITTERNESS
Why is it important to resist bitterness?
Bitterness will affect others. Like a small root that grows into a great tree, bitterness springs up in our heart and overshadows even our deepest Christian relationships. A “bitter root” comes when we allow disappointment to grow into resentment, or when we nurse grudges over past hurts. Bitterness brings with it jealousy, dissension, and immorality. When the Holy Spirit fills us, however, he can heal the hurt that causes bitterness.
EMOTIONS (Affections, Feelings, Reactions)
How should we handle our emotions?
Uncontrolled emotions can lead to bad decisions. When the chorus of despair went up, everyone joined in. Their greatest fears were being realized. Losing their perspective, the people were caught up in the emotion of the moment, forgetting what they knew about God’s character. What if the people had spent as much energy moving forward as they did moving back? They could have enjoyed their land—instead, they never even entered it. When a cry of despair goes up around you, consider the larger perspective before you join in. You have better ways to use your energy than to complain
