  1. Pride is the root of bitterness. Remember, pride causes people to fall, but sometimes they take others with them.

  2. Rubbing shoulders with people can easily rub against our pride and cause roots of bitterness to grow. I try to quickly bring the situation before the Lord in prayer and the first thing I do is thank the Lord for that person and ask if I am the reason for the trouble. As He reveals what is going on I usually end up confessing, repenting and going to them to ask for them to pray for me. But I also continue to pray for them because there are usually deeper wounds and feelings of hurt that take time to heal. It seems to me that prayer is the last thing we do and should be the first thing.
