Everyone experiences hurt in relationships, but most of the time we are able to forgive and forget. But sometimes we experience a major hurt that lingers in our minds and leads to bitterness. We feel trapped by the resulting hostility, ongoing broken relationships, and inability to move on. Can you escape the sorrow and soul impoverishment that bitterness brings?
Robert D. Jones explains how a relationship with Jesus, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering, can free you from bitterness. Then he outlines practical ways to live out the gospel in difficult relationships. Healing and freedom is possible, even for long-lasting hurts.
