Psalm 18:30 NIV
Good sense makes a man restrain his anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression or an offense’ (v.11, AMP).
Lord, forgive me when I am too easily offended. Thank you that, through the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, you overlook my offences. Help me through that same power to overlook the offences of others.
When faced with adversity…
‘He trained us first,
passed us like silver through refining fires…
pushed us to our very limit,
Road–tested us inside and out,
took us to hell and back;
Finally he brought us
to this well–watered place’
No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 4:12 NIV)
