The Truth That Can Set You Free Also Has the Most Potential To Offend You

How can that be true?  Because what you are not seeing is going to offend you, but there is a truth that can set you free.  That truth will be contrary to what you are currently believing.

How to Not Be Offended

2 Timothy 2:22-26
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.


How can we not be offended?  That is a tough question to answer when you are in the midst of a conflict with anyone.  Maybe there is unforgiveness or there is rebellion in your life and you think too highly of yourself.  Or maybe you think it is ok to not forgive someone when they do something against you even if they have admitted the offense and asked for forgiveness.  Perhaps you think, "what's in it for me…

You Can't Solve Problems By Passing Judgments

You Can't Solve Problems By Passing Judgments 


Jesus said, what does the scripture say and how do you read it?

We always defend why we are right. In misunderstandings we over explain things because of our ego.

We want to be understood more than to understand.

We want to be understand so much that we try to prove to the person that our judgments are right and get the other person to agree with our judgments.

We want to try and make you believe that the reason we think you are doing something is the reason you think you are doing something.

It is a maddening kind of fighting that goes in endless circles and nothing ever gets solved.

Person A:
Wants person B to understand why they think their judgment is correct.

But if person A would understand person B more then they might not have those judgments in the first place.

If you make it too difficult for people to talk to you people are going to stop talking to you.

If you make it too difficult for people to ask you questions then peopl…

Freedom From The Slavery of Self-Judgment And Wrongly Judging Others Motives

Freedom From The Slavery of Self-Judgment And Wrongly Judging Others Motives

1 Corinthians 4:3-6 KJV
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
