Offender

A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. Proverbs 19:11

To be a person of wisdom means to live a life according to God’s will. Wisdom is doing things God’s way. Many times God’s way leads the wise to overlook an offense. There may be a situation where someone has offended you. God calls us to look at the offense with wisdom. Why did the person offend you? Should you be offended? How is God asking you to respond to the offense? We are called to wisely assess the situation before we react. By doing so we can see that there are bigger issues at hand. The person who offended you could be going through a horrible situation and didn’t mean to offend you. Or perhaps you saw an offense where there was none. Or maybe they actually meant to offend you. It is to your glory to overlook the offense. It benefits you and brings honor to you if you forgive them and move forward. God is asking you to overlook the wrongs people have done to you. He is asking you to forgive them. He is only asking us to treat other the way we want others to treat us. May we be willing to forgive others as we are asking God to forgive us. #timetochange #lifeundertheson
