    When you’ve got something that is very precious to you, whether it’s rare, expensive, or an heirloom, and you don’t want it to be stolen, broken, or burned up, you take it to the bank and entrust it to the protection of a safety deposit box.

    11-14-16-Forgiveness-How-To-Give-Grace-To-The-Irritable

    When you’re dealing with people who are offensive or irritating, you need to look past the behavior to the pain. Because everything we do is motivated by something. When people hurt others, it’s because they’re hurting on the inside. Hurt people hurt people.

In fact, the very thing you’re most ashamed of in your life and resent the most, could become your greatest ministry in helping other people.
