Proverbs 17:9 kjv


Dwelling on an offense will cause resentment and bitterness.
Talking about it over and over will cause friends and family to split apart .
If you cannot discuss it and resolve it leave it be.
There can be no healing of a hurt if it is picked at again and again.

How do you react when offended or hurt?
Do you tell the story over and over again to anyone who will listen?
What is more important revenge or reconciliation?

Blessings this day of grace,


Proverbs 17:9


When we are hurt by someone we have a choice;
we can quietly forgive or we can tell others.

There may be a temporary sense of satisfaction to talk about the hurt suffered. 
With patience the hurt is eased and love remains. 

Are you willing to lose a  treasure for something that will not last?

May this be a day of grace,
