On Being Offended…
The front end of any offense is revelation for us about us: anything that offends pricks our pride revealing the exact location of its power (in us).
We need not fall, as pride is designed to bring ‘a fall’ to us; but simply humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, seeking His understanding, not our own.
Being offended sends us head over heels seeking our rights as human beings, when in reality God wants us head over heels seeking our responsibility as spirit beings.
A man who constantly seeks his rights will seldom see his spiritual responsibility in that same circumstance.
Our natural man and our spiritual man are constantly warring, but WHO are we listening to?
