Too easily offended?

At one time or another most of us have had to deal with emotions stirred up by what someone has said.

There are all sorts of human solutions—none of them ideal. We may simply develop supertough mental skin. Whatever is said just doesn't penetrate. Or we may endure quiet little explosions within, while mulling over and brooding about some comment. But occasionally there are those explosions that aren't so little, and aren't contained. There needs to be a better way. There is. It has to do with a concept that could be generally described as God's law. The Psalmist made the point this way: "Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them." Ps. 119:165.
