Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 24:16 (KJV); And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.
If there is one character you must build as a Christian, it is one that does not get offended easily.
This is a major weakness for some Christians. The slightest provocation is enough for them to feel abused, disrespected and disregarded.
However, we live in a world full of offence. In Luke 17:1, the Lord tells his disciples that offence will surely come.
Sooner or later, you will be offended, by your friends, sisters, boss, spouse, ministers, neighbours or even strangers.
Like Paul in our theme scripture, you must exercise yourself to always have a conscience that is void of offence.
Learn to shrug off certain things. People should not get to you so easily. Don’t cling to grievances endlessly. Let go and let God!

GOLDEN NUGGET: Learn to shrug off certain things. People should not get to you so easily. Don’t cling to grievances endlessly. Let go and let God!
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this wisdom. I embrace it with humility. I am strong in spirit and do not get offended easily. I know who I am and whose I am, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
