Beautiful words over at the True Woman blog today on the topic of pastor's wives and some of the hurt they can experience:
"Through grace, we can become that beautiful, unique combination of a thick-skinned but tender-hearted woman. It's not that we want to grow calloused, indifferent, or that it's wrong to struggle with sadness. So what do I mean by being thick-skinned?
It means having the grace and strength to avoid being overly sensitive or easily hurt. It means cultivating hearts that are soft, tender, and warm. There's such beauty in a woman who is slow to be offended, quick to extend grace, and who genuinely loves even those people who have caused pain (1 Cor. 13)."
I think whether you are a pastor's wife or not we would all be wise to be slow to be offended and quick to extend grace in every area of our lives.
