That old children’s rhyme might pretend that sticks and stones are the only things that do any damage, but we know the truth. The hurtful words and actions of others can leave behind some of the deepest wounds we carry.
Living with wounds of disappointment, pain and anger can take its toll if we don’t deal with them in a healthy way. Studies show that people who hold onto grudges are more likely to experience depression, PTSD and other serious health conditions. Bitterness can make us physically ill. The antidote? Forgiveness.
For four weeks we’ll discover the strength available through Jesus to help us forgive and let go of the wounds that weigh us down.
