Offended: What to do with the frenemy in front of me
Most of the time in our lives, it’s not our enemies who offend us, but the people around us. When we get offended, it’s natural to get defensive. But what are we defending? Most of the time it’s our own ego. In the sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives us a radically new way to deal with our “frenemies” (friends who sometimes hurt us), and it starts with choosing a different response.
