"A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense."
(Proverbs 19:11, NIV)

Question Reflection:

Is there something that I’m dealing with that requires me to be patient?

  1. We as Christians should be not avenge ourselves but rather give place unto wrath. We have to learn how to hold our tongue and learn to forgive those who do us wrong. Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

    1. These are hard lessons and I myself have had to learn them Debra Gilliam. The Lord takes care of everything in the end. He is a just and faithful God.

    2. Priscilla Johns Thank you for touching and agreeing. This is one of the hardest lessons I had to learn myself. We must forgive those who hurt us. Unforgiveness is like a cancer. If we don't forgive, we're not hurting the person who hurt us, we're only hurting ourselves.

  2. We must forgive. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you ,Matthew 6:14. It is sometimes difficult to be kind to another when they have be offensive and done you wrong. But if you think about it how many times have we all been offensive to God! And He always forgives us and grants us mercy, and we don't deserve it!!! God loves us with all His heart and wants us to be patient! Obedient! And to, Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And ye be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you, Ephesians 4:31-32. Praise Him!!!
