In a world of safe spaces and people that are offended at the drop of a hat.  Here are 7 strategies to live un-offendable. Don’t give the bitterness you feel a chance to take root in your life. Choosing to live without offence is one of the wisest choices you can make.

Here are a few ways we can choose to live unoffended

Forgive easily

When we forgive easily we keep our hearts free from offence and release others from the trap of offence.  We can give grace, even when we are right and they are wrong, even we have not received an apology. It doesn’t hurt me to extend grace to another.

Communicate your feelings

When we communicate our feelings we can begin to hear what the other person is going through, we can have meaningful conversations and relationships can be strengthened through the conflict.

Let Jesus be the centre

When we let Jesus be the centre we realize it isn’t really about us anyway.  Paul tells us in Galatians 2:20, “it is not I who live but Christ who lives in me” We are dead to our own way of thinking and doing, we are now made alive in Christ.  So our offences pale in comparison to the mission of the gospel.
