When elephants are trained to assist humans in places like Africa and Asia they are best taught from their earliest age. At that time, a rope is tied around their trunks and the rope is attached to a grounded pole. No matter how much that elephant tugs, he cannot break free. Over the years the rope and post gets smaller and smaller. The elephant doesn’t attempt to break free because it remembers the times in the past where it was a failure to even try.

So to is what happens to our emotions with bitterness – they are imprisoned. Pastor John Samuel Barnett covers that imprisoning today.
