This morning I rediscovered a little booklet by Louise Eggleston, God's Blueprint for Health, Happiness and Triumphant Living, which had been tucked into a drawer and forgotten. Below is something she said on page 10 that I think needs to be pondered by every person.
She was commenting on one of the phrases from I Corinthinians 13:4-8, "Love is never irritated or touchy."
She says, "Holding a hurt in you, unforgiven and not blotted out of your memory, is the root cause of every form of cancer and arthritis. A cancer patient is always a nice person, very sensitive to others attitudes, easily hurt, but he/she never fights back, or tells others about his/her hurt feelings; never returns any evil to the one who hurt him/her, but he/she has not forgiven it and asked God to blot it out of his/her memory. Even in the last hour of life, a cancer patient can be competely cured, if he/she will confess to Christ in him/her, and ask Him to blot it out of his/her memory and send love and forgiveness, or some simple act of Kindness to the one who hurt him/her. We have proved this over and over, so we can stake our lives on its Truth."
