Sermon: The spirit of offense and how to overcome it?


Disappointments and frustrations are a part of daily life due to the fallen world I live in. Focusing my attention on these negative situations however allows the spirit of offense to settle down within me, form my attitudes, take control of my reactions to situations and shape my character. Ex: The Israelites in the wilderness were frustrated and offended at God because God wouldn’t move the way they expected. Cain felt offended at God and murdered his own brother because God rejected his offer and entertained Abel’s.
