“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold. Ephesians 4:26-27 NIV

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29 NIV

Get rid of all bitterness, rage, and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32 NIV


Being offended is inevitable. Living offended is a choice.
