Can You Stand To Be Offended?

Can You Stand To Be Offended?

teshuva, jesus, God, love, obey, the word
From my office I have witnessed a lot of squabbles and disputes going on amongst brethren, some take each other to court and others threaten to, breathing fire and brimstone on each other. This is not right.
We are all of the same family and should endeavour to sort out ourselves and our issues “inside” rather than expose ourselves to the judgement of the world.
More importantly, we should choose to suffer deprivation, to suffer wrong from our brothers instead of insisting on our right and drag the family name through the mud. It is not easy at all but it is very beneficial to us, God, and His kingdom. We should humble ourselves enough to let go and allow God’s love to have its way and glorify God in our conduct and relationship with one another.
Plus, we should all as individuals ensure that we do not rob, defraud and cheat our brethren, that way peace and harmony will make way for the great move that God desires to make in His Church and in our lives.

1 Corinthians 6:7-8 AMP
[7] Why, the very fact of your having lawsuits with one another at all is a defect (a defeat, an evidence of positive moral loss for you). Why not rather let yourselves suffer wrong and be deprived of what is your due? Why not rather be cheated (defrauded and robbed)?
[8] But instead it is you yourselves who wrong and defraud, and that even your own brethren by so treating them!
