Hebrews 12:15 ESV
See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.
When we open our hearts to God he gives us his grace which keeps his love and forgiveness flowing—even when things go against us. When we draw back from God and things go against us we tend to get bitter. Then the bitterness grows until it causes all kinds of trouble for us and those we touch. Keep obtaining God’s grace by open-heartedly looking to him. Love is so much better than bitterness.
