“Love is hard to offend….And quick to forgive.”  –Love Dare

 

We often take things out the hardest on those who we love the most.  We unleash our frustrations and irritability without thinking twice.

 

What if we could slow our response down?  What if we could show love and mercy and put our own self-interest aside?  What if we could persevere with patience?

 

Psalm 103:8 says, “The Lord is merciful and gracious.  Slow to anger and abounding in mercy.”

 

Christ is our ultimate example!  The old hymn “He Giveth More Grace,” describes it perfectly.  “His love has no limit, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men!  For out of His infinite riches in Jesus, He giveth and giveth, and giveth again!”

 

Lets love like Jesus, showing His love in a selfless way that is hard to offend and quick to forgive.
