Ghosts of Christmas Past

Part 1- Overcoming Offenses
Your life is too short and your calling is too great to live offended.
(Proverbs 19:11) A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
“Whenever anyone has offended me, I try to raise my soul so high that the offense cannot reach it.” – René Descartes
With God’s Help, I’m Getting Over This
I’m getting over being easily offended.
(Ephesians 4:2 NLT) Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.
I’m getting over the big offenses.
(Colossians 3:13 NLT) Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
