FORGIVENESS - Dangers Of Unforgiveness

"Judge not and you shall not be judged,  condemn not and you shall not be condemned,  forgive and you shall be forgiven." Unforgiveness is a very dangerous thing to toy with, like pride, it is usually subtle and it takes conscious effort for people to identify it in their lives. Even when people around us identify it and point it out. Some hide in denial and cover up by saying "i have forgiven," but forgiveness goes far beyond words. Unforgiveness is simply the opposite of forgiveness, so when we lack true forgiveness, we have unforgiveness. DANGERS OF UNFORGIVENESS 1. UNFORGIVENESS HINDERS OUR FORGIVENESS : We retain forgiveness in the same measure that we forgive others. so, when we withhold forgiveness from those who offend us, forgiveness will also be withheld from us. It's simple, when you fail to forgive, you will also fail to receive forgiveness. 2. UNFORGIVENESS HINDERS OUR PRAYERS : It is a must that we should forgive first  before coming to your creato

Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus VS Motorola Edge Plus

Both the Edge Plus and S20 Plus have massive displays, top-tier Snapdragon 865 processors with 5G modems, sophisticated quad-lens rear cameras, big batteries and oodles of RAM.

The Edge Plus has no resistance against submersion, which is pretty disappointing for a device that costs so much. Additionally, the Edge Plus’ nearly 2 millimeters of added thickness makes it pretty chunky compared to Samsung’s offering, and that will only be exacerbated once you slap a case on Motorola’s phone.
