Good day King's and Queen's!
It's inspirational Tuesday.
Reaping and sowing are part of Gods plan for our life. Sometimes offense happens from others and they cause us to respond in ways that are not pleasing to the Lord.
The best thing I have learned to do with offenses is this: Let them go before they happen.
And this is why...
"Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others." Colossians 3:13
While hurtful actions may offend you, don't let a one-time offense cause you a lifetime of pain.
Let it go. And move on with your life.
When we were at our worst, Christ gave up his perfect life for our flawed ones. He has already made up His mind. He has not only forgiven our past mistakes, but our future ones too.
Your greatest opportunity to be like Jesus is when you are being offended. If you could see the full picture of what the person who has offended you has been through, you would understand what they said to you has very little to do with you and a lot more to do with the brokenness they have experienced from somebody else. This is why we have to make allowance for each other's faults because if not, we only respond emotionally with a limited perspective on their life and ours.
Forgive the teacher.
Forgive the ex boyfriend.
Forgive the ex girlfriend.
Forgive the ex spouse.
Forgive the current one.
Forgive your sibling.
Forgive your old boss.
Forgive your old friend.
Forgive the coach.
Forgive your last pastor.
Forgive the person who used a racial slur.
Forgive the police.
Forgive the government.
Forgive a President.
Let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Giving forgiveness allows you to be the bigger person. Understand that Vengeance is the Lords. If you offend others because they offend you.. you will reap what you have sown an become like them.
Forgiveness will set you free.
Don't sweat the small stuff. Pray for those who cause you dismay because they're hurting people .. who hurt people.
This is #JustATouchof_J .. I'm just tryna put it all out there in pieces for you baby.
Trust God and let him handle everything. Remember.. Isaiah 54:17
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
I love you all!
