Loving God, Equipping People, Mentoring Leaders, Reaching Nations
Perhaps the best caricature of the power of resentment was penned by the author Charles Dickens in his novel Great Expectations. There we meet the immortal character Miss Havisham, jilted at the altar many years before. Long ago, she was dressing for her wedding, waiting for the hour of nine when her groom would arrive and the blessed event could begin. The immense wedding cake, along with a sumptuous feast, lay in wait.
At precisely ten minutes before nine, a message had arrived. The groom would not be coming; he had run away with another woman.
