Offense

Offense and Offering do not go hand in hand even though they both start out with "Offe" in their spelling.

You should not give or take offense, even when people annoy you intentionally even if it seems right to scream or act out, please let it go. Just ask yourself is it really worth ruining that relationship for? 


I know it is hard but I have learned to keep quiet in times like this, most times it's not worth the fight. Some people call it silent treatment but the bible says it is better to keep quiet than to talk when angry, it also says it is better to be quiet than talk and remove all doubts of being a fool, this is paraphrased though, but you get me.

We sometimes annoy people too, tell me you have never annoyed someone. I advise that as much as you can and as often as you can cut off any annoying traits you have *this speaks to me too*.

It is better to build bridges than burn them out. somehow we all need each other, let's not be quick to throw blames and pick offenses. Let us take caution when speaking and acting i.e in our speech and actions let not give offense to people.


Have a great Tuesday, stay safe, I pray God protects us all from the fiery darts of the evil and may we not give or take offense today and forevermore. 


Amen
