Hebrews 12:15 ” See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”

A root of bitterness flourishes in the person that takes offense easily.  For when they feel that someone has insulted them…they react not with grace but with indignity and resentment.  And if allowed to grow, this root of bitterness leads to a wounded spirit that is of no use to God. And when this happens among Believers in a Church setting…this is when we see division and disunity.  As Believers, we need to fight for unity within the Body…not murmur, gripe, and easily take offense.
