HOW TO KNOW IF YOU ARE BITTER
No one wants to admit they are bitter. Sometimes everyone else can tell but us. Let me give you another test. Let me ask you to be honest with yourself and answer a few basic questions:
Does it irritate you when people don't agree with you?
Do you think you are usually right and others are usually wrong?
Do you find yourself giving more criticisms than compliments?
Are you short with people?
Do you ask people "loaded" questions just to irritate them?
Is it difficult to talk to someone who has hurt you in the past without constantly bringing it up again?
Do your conversations tend to turn into arguments?
Do you feel disappointed, mistreated or betrayed?
Do you feel like God has let you down?
Do these kind of questions make you defensive?
This weekend @ NCC I will offer practical help to those held hostage by bitterness.
