Dealing with Offensive People

When dealing with offensive people: Respond from a position of grace & kindness. Isn’t that how the Bible says God responds to you and your offensive sins?
This response may not satisfy your (natural) desire to seek ‘justice’ or more accurately, vengeance. However when you get pulled over for a traffic violation ,don’t you hope for leniency? Of course you do. Is that ‘justice’ or mercy? When we mistreat a loved one we tend to minimize their offense. When a loved offends us, whoa it’s always a big deal?

The Bible describes HOW we are treat others very succinctly: Do unto others as you would have done unto you Luke 6:31.

Having an attitude of kindness and grace empowers us to obey God’s Golden Rule.
