“A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.” (Proverbs 19:10 NIV)
What if, as the water poured over the rock, the rock was to become offended and make a scene? What if the water were somehow diverted by the unmerciful rock? Where would the beauty of the waterfall be? For it takes both the water and the rocks to bring forth the often breathtaking scene of water cascading downward, over rocks, fallen trees, and other debris, into a pool or a moving river–a waterfall.
Relationships can be a lot like a waterfall. More than one person plays a role and each must face the choice of employing wisdom, choosing patience, and deciding not to dwell upon offenses in order for the beauty of the relationship to emerge.
