Bitterness will destroy us if we hold on to it. The message of Be Leave is "Be who Christ calls us to be, and leave bitterness behind". Christ calls us to be the light in a dark world ( Matthew 5:14). He calls us to forgive, and be kind even to our enemies ( Luke 6:27). He says we can’t be forgiven by God unless we forgive others ( Matthew 18:35). Our faith in Jesus causes us to love our enemies, and pray for those who persecute us ( Matthew 5:44). Many times our worst enemies are people in our own family, just as Jesus warned: “ Your enemies will be right in your own household!” ( Matthew 10:36). Yet we are to Love them regardless of what they do as a sign of faith in God. This sign of faith can direct a whole nation towards the path of life, harmony, and peace.
