When you hold resentment, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. (Catherine Ponder, Religious leader and author)

When we are greatly offended by someone, we tend to react strongly, not only to the offense, but to the offender. If we begin to resent them, we make ourselves a prisoner of our emotions, without gaining anything over the offender. It would be so much better to learn how to control our reactions and free ourselves from the resentment.

Resentment kills a fool. (Job 5:2) And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone . . . not resentful. (2 Timothy 2:24)
