THE DAMAGE OR HEALING OF UNFORGIVEN OFFENSES

Luke 17:1 NIV Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come.

Jesus is clear and we already know that offenses come as you live among other people. Even in our families, we get offended. In this scripture the offenses are the “things that cause people to stumble.” Jesus doesn’t mess around or apologize when He points out that we can easily become offenders when we are offended. And that word “woe” is a warning from Him that He doesn’t take that lightly and we are accountable to Him to not be the one who offends.Since offenses come to all of us, this is a very relevant teaching from the word, and should ministry to some of the pain and hurt that many of you may still have remaining in your hearts. If it continues to remain, it will damage your health, your attitudes, and your relationships. If it is healed, it will set you free.
