EPHESIANS 4:31-32 NKJV Let all BITTERNESS, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, TENDERHEARTED, FORGIVING one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
HEBREWS 12:14-15 NKJV Pursue PEACE with all [people], and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any ROOT OF BITTERNESS springing up cause TROUBLE, and by this many become DEFILED;
COLOSSIANS 3:18-19 NKJV Wives, SUBMIT (attitude of grace) to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, LOVE your wives and do not be BITTER toward them.
