When a business colleague rubs you the wrong way, are you prompt to forgive the situation?

The Apostle Paul wrote, "Whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you" (Colossians 3:13 NASB).

We can easily hold grudges and resentments against others at work. When we feel wronged, we need to kindly confront the issue, express our concern, and ask for a change of future behavior. When an apology is offered, accept graciously. Then we need to release our feelings to the Lord. Holding resentments will only poison our working relationships. Our forgiving attitude will bring more harmony into the workplace that will grow our business.
