One morning as I sat down to do my morning Scripture reading, I picked up a book sitting next to my chair – “Circle Makers” by Mark Batterson. I just flipped through the yet-unfinished half and my eyes dropped to the phrase – LIVE UNOFFENDED.
When we carry an offense –
1. It drains our energy
2. It distracts our attention
3. It is a result of living life focused on self
4. We are failing to love others as we love ourselves
5. It is sin
PS – When I read more carefully pg. 88-89 of Batterson’s book the concept of living unoffended was referring to not being offended by God when He answers others’ prayers and not yours, but for me that morning – this was the lesson God wanted me to hear.
