20 Sep Ephesians 4:30-31

30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.

Paul is clear that at the base of the commands is a God-centered spiritual foundation. Are you someone who holds grudges, has bitterness? If so, ask God to help you remove those things, because they hinder your spiritual growth. Challenge yourself this week to pray for those whom you have a grudge or have bitterness towards. Ask God to give you an opportunity with that person to move on in your relationship.
