Matthew 24:10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.

People being offended is one of the signs of the Last Days. It’s right up there with rumors of wars and earthquakes in various places.

If we look at what’s going on in the world, we can easily see the offense that people are taking on. People are getting into physical altercations based on another person’s protest. Friendships are being destroyed based on government policies. Marriages are ending because of one difference of opinion.

The culprit behind offense is Satan. Anytime we hear that voice telling us to be offended about something another person said or did, we need to stop and recognize the devil’s presence in our lives. Next, lets reevaluate the situation, communicate with that person to confirm what they’re actually trying to say, hear them out fully, and look at the situation from another perspective.

If we still disagree with their opinion or beliefs, it’s okay. We can agree to disagree and still be friends. There’s no need to lose our minds or friendships over the opinion of another. Let’s all learn to control offense.
