Elderly Woman Bitter for 50 Years

Ray Stedman- A woman in her 80’s told me that, fifty years before, her aunt had said something insulting to her, and this woman had never forgiven her. 50 years later she could recount the event to the precise detail, and she felt all the same bitterness, anger, and resentment welling up within her as when it originally occurred. It was no wonder that, by this time, she had become a bitter, crotchety, quarrelsome, unhappy woman who could find no happiness in life whatsoever. She was still in the hands of torturers fifty years later.

From a sermon by Davon Huss, The Spite House, 11/23/2009
