There’s a story about little boy who one day sat on a park bench in obvious pain.
A man walking by asked the little boy what was wrong.
The boy answered, “I’m sitting on a bumblebee.”
“Then why don’t you get up?” the man asked.
The boy replied, “Because I figure that I am hurting him more than he is hurting me!”
How often do we choose to sit on the bumblebees in our own lives by holding on to unforgiveness?
How easily do we choose to withhold mercy to others when God flamboyantly gives it to us?
How often do we forget that we only hurt ourselves when we choose not to forgive?
So spend some time thinking about your answer to this question:
AM I SITTING ON ANY BUMBLEBEES IN MY OWN RELATIONSHIPS?
If so, be sure to remember this:
Your healing process will only begin when you decide to get up and move on!
