A message delivered by Bishop Mike Oyeniran of Liberty glorious Assembly,, Liberty Road, Ibadan.
Luke 17:1-4 KJV
Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
OFFENCE WILL ALWAYS COMES.
CLOSENESS REVEALS WEAKNESS.
THINKING ABOUT THE OFFENCE IS WHAT MAGNIFY IT.
DON’T EXPECT TOO MUCH FROM MORTAL MAN.
WE ARE NOT WIRED THE SAME WAY, MEN THINK WHEN THEY ARE TROUBLED, WHILE WOMEN TALKED WHEN THEY ARE TROUBLED.
