Love Past the Offense

There comes a point in our lives when we have to make the decision to love past the offense. People hurt each other every single day. There is no one exempt from doing the hurting or being the one hurt. Sometimes things are done unintentionally. When you hold a grudge, you are the one who suffers most. Your mind is plagued with what happened, and it becomes difficult for you to enjoy life. On the other hand, when you hurt someone and you know it, you should put pride aside and ask them to forgive you. I don’t believe everyone that betrays you is a bad seed. I believe people have some serious issues and need someone to help them overcome some things. Many, people don’t know how to have healthy relationships because they don’t know what one looks like. People are reacting to what they have been through or what they have been taught. Do not run from the conflict. Do not ignore the issue. Do not give people the silent treatment when they are reaching out to you. They may not even know there is an issue. You have to love people more than you hate the offense. At the end of the day, God is going to judge YOU! Go out and build a bridge today. Someone has been waiting to hear from you! You might be the key to their healing!
