Beyond the Hurts of Life by Robert Ricciardelli
When someone hurts, offends, or rejects us, we can feel a deep urge to retaliate or withdraw into self-rejection. These occasions most often happen unexpectedly. We may ponder for days over words and actions we might use in response to what others have said or done. This is where we must seek God's strength more than ever to bring us beyond our need to hurt others or ourselves, and be free to forgive and to love.
