Offense is a Choice

David A. Bednar:
"Certainly clumsy, embarrassing, unprincipled, and mean spirited things do occur in our interactions with other people that would allow us to take offense. However, it ultimately is impossible for another person to offend you or to offend me. Indeed, believing that another person offended us is fundamentally false. To be offended is a choice we make; it is not a condition inflicted or imposed upon us by someone or something else."

  1. I wish I had this quote earlier today when talking with a friend.
    This is so true! Thanks for sharing..
    Offenses usually are NOT intended. When one has the spirit of discernment they can fell the difference:)


Hope you have a brilliant day!!
