CLOSE THE DOOR TO OFFENCE
(Be A True Worshipper And Refuse To Be Offended)

👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

📖 TO THE BIBLE
Proverbs 19:11 NIV “A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense”

◀ LET’S TALK
“Ouch!” screamed Sandra, “Why would you just step on my toes like that? Are you blind or something?” “Oh, I’m so sorry! I honestly didn’t see you there, but there’s really no need for insults. It was a mistake!” Harry said, attempting to apologise.

“Mistake, my foot! You meant it and I’ve taken note of it,” Sandra said, as she scampered away in anger.

Reading this story, one would wonder why Sandra refused to accept Harry’s apology and remain unoffended. Even Harry got upset as he tried to apologise to her. Every day, opportunities to be offended are presented to us, and according to the Bible, they will come. People will do things to hurt or offend you, but it’s entirely up to you to decide whether or not to be offended.

Healing School by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

In Mark 7, the Syrophenician woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit could have been offended at Jesus’ statement. She had cried after the Master for help, and in their ensuing dialogue, Jesus said, “Woman, it’s not right for us to give the children’s bread to dogs” (Mark 7:27 paraphrased). The woman could have thought aloud, “How could He call me a dog, just because I’m asking him for help? Is this how He talks to people?” But no; she was smarter than that. In a remarkable display of humility, she replied, “…Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs” (Mark 7:28 paraphrased). Consequently, she got her miracle! Why wasn’t she offended by the Master’s statement? She had the heart of a true worshipper!

As a true worshipper, you don’t care what anyone says to or about you; you don’t care how anyone treats you. All that matters to you is your love for the Lord and your desire to please Him. Always remember that it’s to your glory to overlook an offence. Don’t say, “I can’t take that insult for any reason!” You’ve been decorated with honour and kingdom dignity; no one, and nothing, can dishonour you.
