“A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.” – The Old Testament, Proverbs 19:11
I absolutely love the way the Bible puts this, from the NIV. “It is to his glory to overlook an offense.”
That is the way that one should conduct their life. Take no offense from anyone, no matter what it is that they do. And be proud of the fact that your strength in Christ and your knowledge of Biblical Wisdom, gives you the ability to overlook offenses; something that the world will often not even attempt to do. But instead will revel in getting revenge, keeping a grudge, and answering an offense with an offense equal to the person who slighted them. (Secular rap culture, I’m looking at you!)
This is an amazing verse, and a very wise one indeed.
