See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people. (1 Thessalonians 5:15)

Our first reaction when we get offended is to return the offense and exact punishment that we received. As a believer in Christ, we know better than to lash out in anger and return the hurt, although we do it in subtle other ways. Don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked by replaying what happened to you over and over in your head. When you do that you are focused on repayment for the offense. Know that God will handle that! After all there is so much more work to be  done, such as showing them God’s love.
