“And [Jesus] said to His disciples, Temptations (snares, traps set to entice to sin) are sure to come, but woe to him by or through whom they come!” (Luke 17:1 AMPC)
Watch out for the crippling power of offense and unforgiveness! Jesus requires you to forgive and try to make it right with your brother or sister. When you don't, when you choose to be offended or not to forgive, you have allowed the enemy access to your heart.
“Jesus was matter-of-fact: ‘Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, 'Go jump in the lake'—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it's as good as done. That's why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you'll get God's everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it's not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.’" (Mark 11:22-25 MSG)
Offense and unforgiveness will stop your forward movement and impact your impact, cripple your reach, and so much more! Offense and unforgiveness are traits of the devil's kingdom, his way of doing things, and no believer should want to actively participate in that or be associated with that.
