Hurt

Acts 8:23
“For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.”

Simon was previously hurt probably because he was no longer the great one, the crowds had moved away from him towards the Church. He was experiencing a greater power than he had. It hurt his business and his feelings.
How do I know he was hurt?
I know because he became bitter. In fact he became full of bitterness.
Getting hurt is one thing but if you don’t deal with it then bitterness will set in. When bitterness takes a hold then sin is not far away and will entrap us.
Hurt, bitterness, sin. That’s the order. Deal with that hurt today.
