One Another

This month we want to explore what it means to be in RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER and how to build healthy and strong relationships in our church, our family, our workplace and beyond. In this bible study, we’ll be looking at what the bible teaches about how to avoid living with offense in a relationship and what we’re to do when we’re offended by someone.


Proverbs 19:11 (AMP)

“Good sense and discretion make a man slow to anger, and it is his honor and glory to overlook a transgression or an offense [without seeking revenge and harboring resentment].”


Proverbs 18:19 (NLT)

“An offended friend is harder to win back than a fortified city. Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with bars.”


James 1:19 ESV

“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.”


Acts 24:16 ESV

“So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man.”


James 3:16 (TPT)

“So wherever jealousy and selfishness are uncovered, you will also find many troubles and every kind of meanness.”


Proverbs 17:9 (CEV)

“You will keep your friends if you forgive them, but you will lose your friends if you keep talking about what they did wrong.”


Ephesians 4:2-3 (TPT)

“With tender humility and quiet patience, always demonstrate gentleness and generous love toward one another, especially toward those who may try your patience. Be faithful to guard the sweet harmony of the Holy Spirit among you in the bonds of peace.”


Proverbs 10:12 (GNT)

“Hate stirs up trouble, but love forgives all offenses.”
