If ever tempted to resent the actions of another person, it’s much easier to love them instead.
Resenting is hard work. It’s taxing, burdensome, onerous, troubling, and painful. It covers up one’s otherwise pleasant demeanor and can become a monumental waste of time and energy. No good comes from it.
The wiser choice is to love.
Love is a divine power that corrects misunderstandings, finds common ground, builds bridges, looks for good, and gains the upper hand.
Love does not overlook evil and pretend like it is not there when an offense has been committed. Love faces evil fearlessly and dissolves it. Love takes control.
Reflecting the Mind of Love, rather than dropping into an abyss of negativity, keeps thought in a positive place. It keeps us feeling good, buoyant, joyful, and healthy!
Love is power. Love is authority. Love is dominion.
There is never a requirement to resent. We can respond with love.
Choose love! It’s the easier way to live.
