Resentment Quotes (216 quotes)
The Christian Post
Jesus likened withholding forgiveness to a prison Matthew The irony is the person who will not forgive is the one locked inside the four walls. The first prison wall is revenge. The second prison wall is resentment. Resentment means literally to feel again. It is bitterness, or a poison of the heart. Jesus said that we should forgive from the heart.
Bitterness does not only happen because of breakup or when you get dumped by the person you like. You normally feel it whenever you think you are being treated unfairly. Of course, no one wants to feel this way. Overcoming resentment is a battle inside you. I encourage you to try them.

I've had to forgive others who never apologized and I've had to forgive myself for many shameful and regretful actions that I committed. But once I did, the weight was lifted off of me and my heart became burden-free.

The author, who has taught New Testament studies at New College, Berkeley, California, shares of his own grief, frustration, and confusion when he underwent significant hardship and lost most of his eyesight for several years. Greatly challenging was that his Christian friends and pastor deemed his "raw response" to be unacceptable for a believer, an attitude that Snyder warns continues to manifest in many churches, isolating Christians who are struggling.
