Bitterness is a form of anger toward God and others that brings despair of soul. It is a hatred of others and a lack of forgiveness of their wrongs, whether those wrongs are real or  perceived. Our bitterness grieves that situations have not been made “right” according to our own expectations. Bitterness causes us to miss out on God’s grace in daily life, and it spreads trouble to others (Heb. 12:15). Contrary to bitterness are joy, love, and meekness.

BITTERNESS in the heart says such things as: “I want others to suffer for their wrongs against me.” “I hate them.” “God has done wrong to me.” “I can’t get over this….”

Bible Verse:-

“Hate stirs up trouble, but love forgives all offenses.”
‭‭Proverbs ‭10:12‬ ‭GNT‬‬

“Anyone who hides hatred is a liar. Anyone who spreads gossip is a fool.”
‭‭Proverbs ‭10:18‬ ‭GNT‬‬

“But if you act like wild animals, hurting and harming each other, then watch out, or you will completely destroy one another.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:15‬ ‭GNT‬‬

“Get rid of all bitterness, passion, and anger. No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ.”
‭‭Ephesians ‭4:31-32‬ ‭GNT‬‬

“Try to be at peace with everyone, and try to live a holy life, because no one will see the Lord without it. Guard against turning back from the grace of God. Let no one become like a bitter plant that grows up and causes many troubles with its poison.”
‭‭Hebrews ‭12:14-15‬ ‭GNT‬‬

“If we say we love God, but hate others, we are liars. For we cannot love God, whom we have not seen, if we do not love others, whom we have seen. The command that Christ has given us is this: whoever loves God must love others also.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:20-21‬ ‭GNT‬‬
