Proverbs 19:11 NIV, ”A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.”
With the stress of today’s world, we are presented with opportunities to be offended on a regular basis. This verse, challenges us to overlook offenses; however, it is wisdom that will help us to know how to handle a situation. Sometimes we have to confront people, but other times it is wise to patiently extend mercy and let go.
The Holy Spirit will guide us into truth regarding the circumstances surrounding our situations. We need to have the right timing and the right words when addressing someone who has offended us. It is always wise to pray and think before we act and speak.
