"It is as much a Christian duty to avoid taking offense as it is to avoid giving offense."
Ah-ha! I've heard that one before when I was going through my hippy phase! I believe Ken Keyes coined the phrase in the '60s"You make yourself and others suffer just as much when you take offense as when you give offense"http://www.amazon.co.uk/Handbook-Higher-Consciousness-Ken-Keyes/dp/1870845242
Heh...I hadn't heard the phrase before (or its variations), but thought there was much wisdom in it.
