Why You Can’t Tolerate Bitterness. The Johnsons have been married for six good years! But they have not been good to themselves. Mrs. Johnson got to discover some things about her husband and she became livid with anger. 

Different times of confrontations with her husband yielded nothing other than strong denial. 

Her anger, attitude, and subtle withdrawal as a result of trust broken and stubborn denial further aggravated Mr. Johnson because he only saw those actions as disrespect.

Mrs. Johnson became bitter as result. She felt “naked” because of the feeling that her husband couldn’t be vulnerable to her as she was to him.

On the other hand, Mr. Johnson felt rattled and was wondering why she delighted herself in digging up what happened in the past, details of which he claimed he could remember all.

Bitterness crept into their marriage and alongside brought its cousins which even added to the damage. 

Heb 12:15 (AMPC)
Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing), in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it—

Take note of the following: Why You Can’t Tolerate Bitterness 

  1. Watch out for one another. Be interested in yourselves and love yourselves deeply 

Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another]…

  1. God’s grace, which entails favour and blessing can be lost or can fail 

…to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing),

3. Bitterness, also referred to as rancour or hatred is a root! Roots are not seen! But the fruits of chaos confusion, losses, bitter torment, and troubles will shoot up if allowed!

…in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment,

4. It defiles many other people including children, families, and sometimes friends! 

…and the many become contaminated and defiled by it

Conclusion: Why You Can’t Tolerate Bitterness 

Bitterness is not worth it. Don’t allow it in your relationship or marriage. Forgive quickly, love one another, and don’t give the devil a legal ground to afflict you! 

May God grant you more understanding!
