Proverbs 19:11 “A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it’s to his glory to overlook an offense.”

Discipline & self-control are the true marks of a wise person. Or as Proverbs 14:29 tells us, “Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding…” But not taking offense at cutting remarks also requires discretion, prudence, and godly insight…and is a life-long journey of offering forgiveness in the face of willful unrighteousness by another. James 1:19 reminds us, we are to be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. So in order to honor God in our lives, patience & forgiveness must be the rule of thumb.
