Bitterness I. It can happen to anyone. Forgive quickly. To forgive is hard. To be forgiven is easy. Put yourself in their shoes. Many times we are reaping what we have sown. Go soul winning with them. Pray for them. Write letters of appreciation. Never let your wife know of differences.
Bitterness II. Speak kindly. Do not believe everything you hear. Forget it and move on. Never discuss people at staff or deacon’s meetings. Teach Dr. Hyles’ book PROPER TREATMENT OF CHURCH MEMBERS-Wednesday nights. Win souls weekly. Keep baptismal waters stirred. Balance teaching and preaching.
