I think people should ask these two questions instead of reacting emotionally to “hurtful” words. Does God call us to be not easily offended?
- Is there value in that opinion/statement/action for me, even if I don’t like it?
- If I don’t like it, could it be that it touched something inside of me that I need to explore?
- Might I learn about my own insecurities if I explore what the words of another stir up inside of me emotionally?
