Thankful Thought of the Day:

When we overlook an offense, we grow in beauty in the midst of a harsh environment.

Scripture of the Day:

Proverbs 19:11

“A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.”

Sometimes people can say and do some pretty crazy things to one another. But it is how we process other people’s actions toward us that matters. Sure, a person can sin in mistreating another person, but then a chain reaction can ensue when the offended answers with a response.  Will it be anger? Bitterness? Unforgiveness? Or grace?

When people offend or minimize us, we can feel shame. But when we overlook their slight, the shame is off us!
