rew remembered the feeling in the pit of his stomach every time he thought about it. A coworker, someone he considered a close friend, had taken credit for his idea and was reaping the benefits at work.
Drew soon noticed that his anger had little effect on his coworker but a big effect on him. A doctor’s visit confirmed Drew’s suspicion. His anger was causing significant health problems. When the doctor asked him if he was under any unusual stress, he had only one explanation.
James 5:16 came to his mind. “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”
Drew absolutely knew that he was powerless to repay God for the sins he’d committed. He finally realized that it was unfair for him to refuse to forgive others. The desire to extend the gift of grace to his coworker began to fill his heart.
