Proverbs 13:10 ” Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.”

Taking offense against another person only fosters conflict and produces  anger.  When our feelings are hurt, we rise up in righteous indignation and can easily allow arrogance to take over at that moment.  We feel disrespected and insulted, not even listening to the wise counsel…for all we hear is an attack on our  belief system…even if that belief system is  corrupted.  The world likes to take offense  over the craziest things…But as a Believer, we need to be wary of allowing pride to color our interactions with others.   Proverbs 9:9 states, ” Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.”
