If you’re tempted to carry around a resentment, cherish the power and presence of Love instead. It will have a much better effect on you!
As a child of God, you were created to live love, express love, and to be divine Love in action. Life is always lived at its best when lived in love.
Resentment is the opposite of love. It often includes anger, bitterness, a sour attitude, ingratitude, self-righteousness, self-indignation, a depressed outlook, unhappiness, and mental illness. It’s not a healthy happy place to be. Why suffer? It’s not necessary.
Live in Love instead. Learn to forgive “seventy times seven” as Jesus taught (Matt. 18:22), to see God in control instead of other people, to see abundance flowing from God that makes up for any perceived material loss.
Learn to let other people’s false accusations roll off your thought like water on the back of a duck. Don’t let resentment stick. Commit to living true to the Mind of Love and return blessing for cursing.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “The Christian Scientist cherishes no resentment; he knows that that would harm him more than all the malice of his foes” (Message of 1902, p. 19).
Cherish Love, not resentments. It will have the best effect on those around you, and for you too!
