Being "unoffendable" the ridiculous idea wait... it's possible.
“Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart.” Corrie Ten Boom
What would your first reaction might be in one or all of these scenarios:
• A person in a red sports car cuts you off in traffic and then reacts as if it was your fault by honking and shaking his fist out the window.
• Your spouse or good friend criticizes you in front of others.
• The boss at your workplace chooses a rookie employee over you for a much-needed promotion.
• Your child refuses to listen and obey you after you’ve repeated the same command fifteen times.
It seems easy to be offended by these types of things in life. What does it mean to choose to be unoffendable?
Read James 1:20 and Colossians 3:8. “The thing that you think makes your anger ‘righteous’ is the very thing you are called to forgive. Grace isn’t for the deserving. Forgiving means surrendering your claim to resentment and letting go of anger.”
