Scripture: An offended brother is more unyielding than a fortified city, and disputes are like the barred gates of a citadel. (Proverbs 18:19)
Prayer: Lord, help me to be sensitive so that I don’t offend others. Help me to be grace-filled so I’m not easily offended.
Reflection: Selfishness makes it easy to ignore–or worse yet, devalue–the people who bother us.
