I have three young kids and trying to keep them all alive is very challenging some days. Our three-year-old especially keeps us occupied to the point of consuming all of our time and energy at times. It seems like we can't get anything done with him thinking he is an adult and can use sharp knives or drive cars or whatever other life-threatening thing he feels he can do. This happens to be a lot like how many of us feel when holding onto how others have wronged us; it occupies all our time and energy so we can't get anything productive accomplished.
Freedom requires forgiveness.
Eph 4:26-27, 32 & Matt 18:21-22
