Hate and unforgiveness keeps you enslaved long after the ones you hate are in the ground.

Matthew 18:34-35 says:
In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.
Joseph Richardson, a New York millionaire lived and died in a house only five feet wide. It was called the "Spite House" and it deserved its name.

Owning the narrow lot of land on which it was built, Mr. Richardson wished to sell it to the neighboring property owners. They would not pay him what he asked, and so he put up this house, which disfigured the block—and then condemned himself to a life of discomfort in it.
