Have You FORGIVEN Those Who Offend

Have You Forgiven Those Who Offend You???


Someone offended you.  Have you forgiven them?

Or do you wish that someone “gets rid of them?”


Too often, actions speak much louder than words.

You may think this is ridiculous and absurd?


The choices you make have an eternal effect.

The offenses toward you, you must forget!


You’ll find in First Corinthians chapter thirteen…

The plan of God’s love takes care of everything!


Many said; “I don’t want anything to with him.”

They’ll do anything they can to avoid him.


If you’re rushing to do this, count the cost!

Let go of this, and lay it at the cross!


Time is short!  Forgive and please

don’t wait!

We may be gone tomorrow,

for heaven’s sake!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proudIt does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongsLove does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails.

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
