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

 

“Whenever anyone has offended me, I try to raise my soul so high that the offense cannot reach it.” – René Descartes

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Ephesians 4:2 NLT

 

– I’M GETTING OVER THE BIG OFFENSES.
