We sometimes tend to get offended when people we love hurt us, people we trust betray our trust, when people misunderstand us or we  misunderstand someone good motives.
In this stressful world one gets offended so....easily.
Today we see a rise in the number of suicides among children and teenagers.
It's sad some of them wanted to end their life because they were offended at the way they were treated or could not take discipline or even good advice.

People who do a good job, have  a good intentions are also taken in offense!
Mark 6:3
"Where did this man get these things?" they asked. "What's this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him.

When we let offense take over our spirit, we end up loosing our joy and peace.
It's better to let go of all hurt feelings.forgive people who offend us and ask forgiveness when we offend people.
One of the devil's beatitudes is,
 Blessed are those who are easily offended 
for they will soon get angry and quit.    
       But we are not quitters but more than conquerors.
Romans 8: 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us
Let us continue to shine for JESUS.
Let's be 'stars' that reflect the Glory of God.
Let's not let rude people steal our joy...
Be blessed this day,
