There was a show once called “Amos and Andy” in that show there was a big man who would slap Andy across the chest whenever they met. Finally, Andy got enough of it and said to Amos, “I am fixed for him. I put a stick of dynamite in my vest pocket and the next time he slaps me he is going to get his hand blown off.” (From God’s Psychiatry, Charles Allen, pg.116) What Andy seemed to forget that the man may lose his hand, but Andy would lose his heart. The same kind of damage happens when we hold unforgiveness and bitterness in our hearts.
