Offend

God’s teaching me
That I’m easily
Offended
And
I need
To understand
I’m not
The only one
And I’m
Only learning
This because
I’ve been offended

  2. Exodus 4:15
    "You are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth; and I, even I, will be with your mouth and his mouth, and I will teach you what you are to do"

  8. Oh how I can relate. I used to not be easily offended but lately I'm just don't have much tolerance for people who do things that offend me. With this COVID-19 crisis I get offended more easily than I used to.
    I try not to get angry at people who mock Jesus or the spammers who really think that I would go against Biblical convictions and get involved in witchcraft and spells. I just need to ask the Lord for grace to deal with such people and realize God loves them.

  9. I'm not sure if I'm that easily offended but I do find that I nay be more sensitive during difficult times like the ones we're in now.

  12. Offended? Yes, we are, yet we need to recall how many times we have offended others. Beautiful!

  14. I try very hard to let anything offensive roll off my back. I have better things to do with my mind than to recount offenses, still it does happen occasionally.

  17. I don't get offended very often, guess that's just me.

  18. Purposeful words Regine. We have one speaker who says that an (easily) offended person is one with a wounded spirit. I give your this for your consideration - no intention to offend or wound. Do with it what you want to.
    Stay safe

  23. OH! Yes! This is so true, there are occasions when it is true I mean! Sometimes I can let it go with no more than a thought.
    Keep safe and well

  24. Ah yes. I suspect I am easily offended too. Or at least, easily hurt. It doesn't happen often but when I does, it's hard to climb out of it. I hope you can.
