The Pros and Cons of Forgiveness/Unforgiveness - The Cons (Part 1)

I found an article by the Mayo Clinic called: “Forgiveness: Letting go of grudges and bitterness” that spoke about the pros and cons of forgiveness, now that intrigued me because I never thought of the benefits of forgiveness other than a chip off your shoulder, but when I started reading it, it all made sense. There are physical, mental and emotional benefits and consequences when forgiving and not forgiving someone. This is a multi-part series that will speak on the pros and cons of forgiveness. This episode, I will speak about a few cons of not forgiving someone...

Something to Think About:

Has any of these cons affected you? Have they affected any of your relationships and/or new experiences? If so, how? 

Write down the way(s) these cons have affected you in your life. What can you do to relieve this? Ask God to help with this.
