Letting go of grudges is not only good for your soul—it’s good for your health. (Heidi Raschke, attorney)

We all know how holding grudges affects both us and the person we’re mad at. If we can learn to forgive, getting rid of bitterness, there can be all kinds of benefits. Restoration with the other person, for example; he or she is relieved of a heaviness. Then, we have not only a restored relationship, but, as Raschke suggests, we will feel better physically and spiritually.

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against a fellow . . . but love your neighbor as yourself. (Leviticus 19:18)
