Memory Verse: You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:18 (ESV)

Elizabeth Gilbert said, “As smoking is to the lungs, so is resentment to the soul; even one puff is bad for you”. Resentment (also called ranklement or bitterness) is a complex, multilayered emotion that has been described as a mixture of disappointment, disgust, anger, and fear. Resentment is a bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly. Sometimes resentment leads to an inability to stop thinking about the event that caused intense emotion, feelings of regret or remorse, fear of avoidance, an intense relationship, inability to let go of anger. Recurring negative thoughts may take over and linger for long periods of time — sometimes even years. For some people, resentment may cause feelings of disappointment or remorse. There is no one cause of resentment, but most cases involve an underlying sense of being maltreated or wronged by another person. Resentment could also be triggered by: 1. Relationships with people who insist on being right all the time. 2. Being taken advantage of by another. 3. Feeling downcast. 4. Unrealistic expectations  of  others.  5.  Not  being  heard.          6. Interactions with people who are always late. Resentment leads to the inability to let go or forgive. Several signs, however, can indicate that you or someone you know might be on the path toward experiencing overwhelming resentment which include: recurring negative feelings, anger, bitterness, frustration, disappointment, hard feelings, uneasiness.


1. Know for sure that all things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to His purpose.

2. Also know that the nature of man will keep giving you a reason why you shouldn’t let go but you have to forgive and forget.

3. Ask the Holy Spirit for divine enablement to leave above resentment which is a work of the flesh.

4. Reach out to the person you resent and talk things over.

5. Reach out to the person you resent and give a gift.

“Anger, resentment and jealousy doesn’t change the heart of others – it only changes yours” – Shannon Alder.
