Ephesians 4:31-32

"Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."
Ephesians 4:31-32

This is awesome.  And difficult, of course.  But think... if we could do it, what the world would be like.  No malice.  No bitterness.  Kindness to EVERYONE, forgiveness to everyone.  ... And how important the part that says "even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."  We are forgiven.  We know what it is like to need forgiveness, to look to God, fearing rejection, and finding forgiveness and love, and a chance to change and start again.  And if we've experienced that in our lives, let's do everything in our power to share that same love and forgiveness with others.  Let's lose the wrath and clamor and find ways to be more tender to to the people around us.  Even as God does for us. :)
