Bible verse of the day 26

Let us read Genesis 34:27:”The sons of Jacob came upon the dead bodies and looted the city where their sister had been defiled.

Here we see a clear example of revenge. It is obvious that this kind of action on behalf of Jacob’s sons could have had severe consequences for all Jacob family. Unforgiveness may lead you to revengeful acts. Bitterness is a bitter root that produces bitter fruits. So, cut the root before it starts bearing the fruit. It may be too late to change something when the fruit of bitterness ripens. Learn to forgive those who have wronged you in one or another. This is how our merciful Lord behaved on the cross. He forgave! And so should we!
