“A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” Proverbs 19:11.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Proverbs 19-21, and Romans 12.
Nothing mentioned here about taking revenge!
I have declared before that I can be very impatient. I get fed up with deficiencies in myself and in others. I want the world to operate in a certain way……and it doesn’t always do that.
I guess, according to today’s verse, that makes me an unwise person.
If I am filled with the Holy Spirit I will handle offenses wisely.
I must start each day tight to God. I must declare to Him that I want to do His Will.
I must have Him beside me as I go through my day. I must pray (to Him) without ceasing.
But I don’t act wisely so often. I have presented the solution. Will I turn completely to Him?
“Lord, have Your Way with me. Take me over. Guide me. Direct me. Prick my conscience when I am off-course. Forgive me for wandering off on my own. Nothing Godly happens when I do that. When will I learn? Help me, Lord. I love You, Father.”
How are you doing handling offenses?
