Let’s see that we are holding our brothers and sisters hostage to our complaints. Just take a moment right now to picture a person in your life that you conflict with. The grievances come quickly to mind. Now, just allow yourself to lay those complaints aside and then see this person in a new light. Notice how they have changed. Recognize them as Son of God, just like you. Allow yourself to feel the love you have had all along for this person. Know, that if you decide to leave your complaints where you lay them, you can continue to feel this way. Sometimes, it is tempting to blame others for problems. These grievances block us from the good that God has for us…they keep us locked into victim mentality. Let’s stop playing the victim, let us lay aside our grievances.
