Ten Commandments for Mature Living #3
Transform jealousy, anger, bitterness, and hatred, rather than give them back in kind.
“Any pain or tension that we do not transform we will transmit.”
Jesus “took in hatred, held it, transformed it and gave back love; he took in bitterness, held it, transformed it, and gave back graciousness; he took in curses, held them, transformed them, and gave back blessings; and he took in murder, held it, transformed it, and gave back forgiveness.”
Just think about that one for a while: whatever we do not transform we will transmit.
