How Do I Respond?

How does God want me to respond when someone makes me mad? Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries. PE

I once read about a city that was divided by a big wall. People on both sides hated those who lived on the opposite side. One night they decided to gather all the trash they could find on their side and threw it over the wall - leaving a mound of garbage for their neighbors to wake up to.

The next morning the recipients of the garbage held a meeting and devised a plan. That night they gathered beautiful things and threw them over the wall. Flowers and anything beautiful they could find were piled in a heap on the other side. And above the mound of beautiful things they hung a note that said: "Each man gives what he has.”

So, what can we give in return when someone offends us? Do we throw an insult their way or offer something beautiful like a compliment.
