Be not Offended

Proverbs 18:19
A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

Matthew 11:6
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Psalm 119:165 165Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Mark 9:42 42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

In our culture with it's 'rights' and 'entitlement' mentality, one thing is for sure - people are offended over everything.

The Name of Jesus sets many off. They aren't blessed.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Families will gather. Be wise in your words. Abundant with God's love. Quick to give and quicker to forgive. Guard your heart from taking offense. Very little really matters. I mean seriously, does it really matter if the Cowboys when the game or not?

Bless the food. Enjoy your family. And be the light of the World, honoring the name of Jesus with your words and actions.

Enjoy the Holiday tomorrow and Give Thanks to the One who is worthy.
