Bitterness blurs your vision, exaggerates your emotions, and takes a healthy, balanced perspective of life and twists it out of proportion.
You can be riding along with a full tank, and bitterness will show you a gauge almost empty. How often do we beg and plead for God to give us something—a mate, a child, riches, healing—when already we may be fuller than we would be if God gave us what we wanted?
Could not God’s withholding our request (which to us leaves us “empty”) actually be God giving us more than our desires?
