2018-11-06 | 🔗
Proverbs 19:11 says, "good sense makes one slow to anger and it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense." It does us no good to go around offended.There’s always going to be reasons to take an offense. The word offense comes from the Greek word which means bait. Sometimes that’s what happens to use with offense. It lures use into a trap. We get upset, frustrated, and bitter. Listen, don’t take bait. You can’t take the bait of offense and live in victory, joy, and peace. Shake off the any offense. Give it to God. Live happy, healthy, and whole.

why because the longer that spots there the harder it is to remove as you that's the same way with a fence with you have a stain of offence on your heart the longer you allow it to be there the harder it's gonna take to get rid of it but the sooner you let it go the better off you'll be don't go hour by hour day today trying to figure it all out it's not that important if it's offended you not that important proverbs one thousand nine hundred and eleven says good sense makes one slow to anger and it is to one's glory look and events good sense makes one slota anger and it's too glory to overlook in events you see it's to our good it s no good
