“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

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

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

In today’s social media climate many people feel compelled to share their thoughts on a wide range of topics regardless of their knowledge base. In reading these assorted viewpoints the temptation to take these opinions personally can be overwhelming, especially on subjects for which we are emotionally invested. As Christ followers we are called to a different type of response from the easily offended, quickly angered world. Let us take a step back rather than immediately plunging forward with our knee-jerk reactions which, once said, cannot be unspoken. Love is not easily offended.🚦
