DIG for Sunday the 18th of January……being offended and taking offence is a sign of immaturity…..Mark 4 v 17

Such wisdom from a great pastor!

Heilan Word Ministries

After being prompted by a member of the fellowship I have started studying out what the Bible says about being offended or taking offence.

I am just at the start of these studies (so will probably write more in DIG in the future) but already I’ve had a few revelations.

The Word shows many people being offended and suffering for it; it also shows ways of dealing with issues so that being offended is not what we do.

The biggest challenge so far, and the greatest revelation for me is that being offended is a sign of Christian immaturity.

In Mark 4 we read the parable of the sower, with verses 16 and 17 talking about stony ground.

This is a picture of a believer who is immature, who does not really understand the Word, and does not have a good foundation in the truth (or in other words roots).
