Getting Rid of That Bitter Taste

For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness.
Acts 8:23

Ephesians 4:25-32

Tired of bitter coffee? Coffee faddists have rediscovered an old method for providing a smooth and velvety taste to your morning brew. Here’s the secret: Mix a beaten egg into the grounds, boil the mixture, and let it steep for about ten minutes before pouring in a cup of cold water. The egg and grounds settle on the bottom, and the resulting coffee is smooth as silk—or so they say.

What’s the secret ingredient to removing a bitter taste from our personalities? We’re living in an age of abuse, in which we never know when we’ll be ridiculed, criticized, robbed, cheated, betrayed, offended, or in some way harmed by others. Some injuries are slight, others are severe, but they can all leave real bitterness.

Left untreated, bitterness poisons us. The secret ingredient for removing bitterness is the love of God, and there’s an effective recipe for us in Ephesians 4:32. If you’re struggling with an angry or bitter spirit, memorize this verse, think about it day and night, and pray it into your life: “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Love alone makes heavy burdens light … love makes bitter things tasteful and sweet.
Thomas a Kempis
