Breaking the Habit of Offense
We often see offense as something that someone else does to us. But because of our new nature, a nature that is no longer dominated by the flesh, we alone make the decision to become offended. When we become offended, we build fences between us and another person, causing us to no longer see who they are and to only see what they've done or said to us. If we can learn to respond to people in a way that values what they have to say and examines our own heart, offense should never be a problem.
