YOU ARE CHOOSING TO BE OFFENDED. Offense is a choice and if you are looking to be offended, you will always find a way. How is it that you are so blinded? It is your pride that blinds you. You are offended because to be proven wrong would destroy your massive ego. What is the call of the Christian? A man that is still full of pride has never been to the cross. “If a man slaps you on one cheek, turn and give him the other”.
Are you not called to sacrificial love? To prefer others not like yourself, but actually better than you? Why are you so angry? Have you not done the same to another? What were your faults before God? If I should mark all iniquity that was against you, it would take up several chalkboards, you hypocrite.
How is it you condemn anyone? Where were you when He made the boundaries of the ocean? Is the Creator of the Universe not strong enough to watch over you? There is one Judge and He will judge you and I and all humanity with His righteous judgment. He will bring all things into light, every injustice and false allegation. If you’re looking for an offense, find it in yourself and look to the cross for His perfect healing. “For there is not a just man on earth who does good And does not sin. Also do not take to heart everything people say, Lest you hear your servant cursing you. For many times, also, your own heart has known That even you have cursed others.” Ecclesiastes 7:20-22 #runyourrace
