From children to parents : The root of bitterness
Thank you for your participation in the previous post, your comments have helped me so much, and I would like to mention a particular topic brought up by the beloved Salette Dartora.
How about when parents, due to the lack of knowledge, fail to fulfill their role?
I remember when government authorities, parents, teachers, law enforcement, etc., served as true references. They seemed untouchable and perfect in the eyes of an innocent child. In fact, back then you wouldn’t see that much corruption like you do today, which is multiplying greatly each day. There was security, untainted care that protected certain values that we no longer see today.
But not everything is based on that. Even though someone might have the best of intentions that doesn’t make them complete.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)
Betrayal, murder, stealing, prostitution, and adultery should not be linked only to “grotesque sins”, but they are also a true reflection of who we are, with serious consequences for those we love.
And don’t think that when parents curse their children through thoughtless words and plague them without realizing it, just because they acted on anger and by impulse is any less dangerous. How so? When you say, “You’ll never amount to anything.” “You’ll be miserable like your father…”; “If you leave this house, you’re going to suffer…”
Did you know that this type of bad fruit could bear rotten fruit for many years in a person’s life by fueling hatred, pain, complex and bitterness?
Every day we help people who identify themselves with these types of problems. These roots have been part of their lives for many years and have affected every area of their life.
You might say, but, Andreia, just with one word? Yes my friend! One word can influence in such a way that it can build or destroy kingdoms, make or break alliances. Now imagine the influence your words have on someone who is empty inside and doesn’t have God’s protection. That’s why it’s important for you as a parent to pay close attention, not only to the grotesque mistakes, which without a doubt leave scars, but also like we mentioned in a previous post with simple words that can cause terrible damage.
But thank God, it is reversible!
If you are a victim of what we mentioned, or the author of it, then know that good intentions don’t prevent us from making mistakes. And because of lack of knowledge of the Word of God, and its practice, people tend to make mistakes repeatedly, in which only cause them harm.
– If you attend the Church, examine your words and actions, to see if they have been in agreement with God’s Word;
– If you detect a root of bitterness, even if it seems insignificant, get rid of it by using your faith. If you feel the need, speak to a man or woman of God;
If you don’t attend the Church, but realize that there is an oppressive force that impels you to have reactions that you can’t control then it’s time to take action against everything that tries to dominate you.

People may be destroyed because of their own lack of knowledge, but its even worse when another person is led to destruction because of someone else’s lack of knowledge. This not only applies to the parents and children but also in the saving of souls.
