People’s words and actions can hurt our feelings. I don’t think having your feelings hurt is a choice, but what happens after is. We have a choice to let those words dig deep and live offended or we can choose to overlook that offense and leave it outside of our heart and mind. We can’t help what people think of us, but we can choose to honor God by choosing to not be offended.
Questions for further thought:
1. Would you consider yourself easily offended?
2. If yes, what things could you do to change that?
Challenge: Read 1 John 1:8-10 and reflect on its meaning.
