What is unforgivness?
God hates unforgivness like He hates all other sins. It is good to forgive people He wants you to forgive just like He forgave all of us. God wants you to move on and make up with the person you need to forgive. It is not good to hold grude and God wants us not to do that because when you hold grudge, you are nursing the hate. You let the hate grow in side of you. And soon after a while, the hate consumes you. You can't stop thinking of the hate, it turns into obsession.
I have been unforgiving and everybody has. But most of us do not go to the extreme. But just because you are not at the extreme yet does not mean you will not be tomorrow. And just because you are not at the extreme, it does not make unforgivness is ok. No matter how much a person has hurted you, you should forgive them or try not to feel hatred in the first place. It is what God wants for us. When we forgive, it makes God happy. And we should want God to be happy. And in the end, it will make us happy too. A weight is lifted off our shoulders. People around us will recoginze that we became more cheerful that we are nicer, that we are all around better. Once you finally let go, life will feel better. It is just not good to sit in your basement and let hate take over you. Get over it and forgive the person who did wrong to you and forget the hate you felt before.
This is my summary of what unforgiveness means.
What is Jealousy/Envy?
Jealousy /Envy is when you want something that belongs to someone else. Wether it is someone's house, car, friends, even their life. When you wanted the part in the play, or missed the promotion the other guy got. Jealousy comes when something you really wanted is "stolen" from you. Or when you find out someone else has something you want and you want it for yourself. It gets really bad when you take extreme measures to get what you want like stealing, laying, or even killing.
Jealousy is very dangerious. God does not like jealousy at all. He shows this in James 3:13-18. He does not like it because people lose sight when they are jealous. They do not think straight. People who are jealous feel like they are cheated out of something. They feel like somebody got something they deserve. One reason why God does not like us to be jealous is people might trun to God and blame Him for the probem they are going through in jealousy. What we should be doing is turning to God so He can help us through the jeaousy. God will show us that jealousy is not helpful. He can shut down jealousy in us completely. We will feel peace in our life and probably realize that what we were being jealous about is completely unimportant. We will feel foolish that we ever doubted God. You will not be jealous of people whose life are going great. Because your life is going great. That is why it is a great idea to trun to God when you feel jealous or any other negative emotion.
Sometimes I get jealous and you are too. I am jealous when I see a kid with a new game. But I get over it pretty quick. I realize that it it not a good idea to get mad over this little thing. You may get jealous too but take my advice do not get too crazy about it. If you want something someone else has badly enough to think of it all the time, you should get it yourself. And if you can't get it, simply get over it.
This is my summary of jealousy and envy.
What is Slothfulness?
Slothfulness means being lazy and it is dangerous. Slothfulness means when you sit around all day and neglecting your duties and not getting anything done. When you actually do it, you do it bad. The quality of your work gets worse and worse, until you get fired from your job. You slowly lose all money, friends and family will start to slowly drift apart from you. After you ran out of money, you will be forced to beg on the street all because of slothfulness. When you are slothful, whatever can be put off tomorrow, is put off for tomorrow.
I myself have acted slothfully, you probably have too. Relaxing is okay, but when you do too much of it, that is when it turns into a problem. You need to set time aside to relax and time to work. You need to control how much time you spend relaxing.
God does not like slothfulness. He shows this in 2nd Theselonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat”. God does not want to see people ruin their lives when they are lazy.
When people are lazy, they do not respect God and they do not worship Him. Laziness prevents us from worshiping God. They ignore the very reason that He created us, instead of worshiping, we just do our own thing. It is not fair to God, and it is not right. God is very happy when we worship Him. We should try to make God happy as much as we can instead of Him disciplining us.
This is my summary of Slothfulness
What is Pride?
AUTHOR : Amanu
Pride is an emotional state that can easily take over you. It is kind of you are full of yourself, thinking that you are the the best things since sliced bread. If you are not careful, right now pride might be driving you to think that this is not your problem, that everything about you is fine. But news flash - if you think like this, then you are acting pridefully
Pride can affect everyone. Even Christians. God hates pride. He says so directly in the bible. There is no problem to be proud of our accompishments but pride turns into a problem when it is out of control. You have to understand authority over you. You should also know when you are wrong, instead of being pridful and believing that everything you do is always correct. When people are really doing well in life, they can start thinking their victories are not coming from God but from themselves.
Some sings of someone is falling to pride are: arrogance, self promotion, not giving to God and others, selfishness, not listening, not respecting authority, rebelling, bragging, you are too good to sepnd time with others, thinking that everyone should do it your way, that everyone should think like you, you are always right and no possible way you could be wrong instead of litening the other person's story, and no regard for others.
This is my summary of pride.
