Choose to be gracious and giving
TIS THE SEASON OF GIVING AND RELEASING!
“It’s more blessed to give than receive.” -Jesus Christ, The Lord…
“it’s a blessing for the one who is released, but, also a bigger blessing for the one who releases.” -I’ve said this, as well as others…
“It’s more blessed to be righteous than right.” -Garry Meineke…
You might win the battle of being right, but you won’t necessarily win the war—you might end of dead right! For when you demand “your right of way,” you may very well end up “dead right away!”
The more prudent way, is to give up your right, after all, it’s more blessed to give than receive…Jesus really did say that and He really did mean to say it!
Some might say, “but, I’ve been wronged!” You may very well be right, but it doesn’t have any power or influence to make you better. Only releasing the wrong will make it right and cause you to get better!
If you choose not to do it Papa God’s way, by releasing the wrong, then you won’t get better, you’ll just become bitter and have a set of bigger problems to eventually deal with, that in order to get relief, you’ll have to release to get better! There is no other way around it to get better.
Papa God’s Word tells us that revenge is His to repay, not ours!
Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:19-21 NIV)
His way is the only way that works. Our way will always be ineffective and will not ever produce the desired result!
We should also not have the attitude, because we know The LORD will avenge us, “okay LORD, go get em and get em real good!”
Nor should we allow our pride or bitterness to rule our lives, but choose to clothe ourselves in humility. Pride and bitterness leads us to utter and total humiliation, while humility and releasing leads us to being exalted in due time!
Look after each other, so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God! Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. (Hebrews 12:15 NLT)
Tis the season for giving and releasing! Ah ha, perhaps the greatest gift you can give someone this year, is the gift of releasing them. Then, you too will receive an even greater gift of being released, no longer held captive, but set free, with liberty, peace and joy!
Happy giving and releasing season to all! Blessings…
