Are you easily offended? Let’s face it, people can be cruel, insensitive and don’t always think before they speak. However, I have learned that I am the one who chooses how to respond to others. I can either choose to get angry, offended, and become self-righteous or I can choose to look at the other person’s perspective. Maybe they didn’t mean for me to take their comment the way I did. Maybe they had a perfectly good and Christian reason for saying what they did. Through allowing God to lead in my life, I have made the decision to look for the best in others, to try to see things from their perspective. The article HERE from Beyond Today written by Becky Sweat has a great perspective on this subject. This isn’t a fix all, I still find my blood pressure start to rise when someone makes what I perceive to be a judgemental or insensitive comment, but God is helping me to begin to overcome it.
