Nursing an Offense


GOD PAUSE: Here's something that never ceases to amaze me --- even though it probably shouldn't. It is this --- the ways of God are always opposite the ways of the world around me. I was reminded of that again from a verse I was reading this morning, found in Proverbs 12:16. It says “If you shrug off an insult and refuse to take offense, you demonstrate discretion indeed. But the fool has a short fuse and will immediately let you know when he's offended.” Let's face it. We live in a world where everybody seems to be offended by someone else. And he or she will broadcast it. Dear Lord, help me and my friend live out in wisdom, guided and convicted by your words. May we not give in to the temptation to harbor or nurse on offenses that come our way. Help us to let it go. In Jesus' mighty name. Amen and amen.
