But some of us are a bit touchy. We are so easily offended by others that folks have to walk on eggshells around us. Then there are those we know who are so touchy we have to walk on eggshells around them. Ask any daughter-in-law how she feels when her husband's mother comes to visit. Ask any mother-in-law how she feels when she goes home.
In a world of political correctness that has taken things from the word articulate (which I'd consider a compliment if someone said I was articulate) to Christmas, it's hard not to offend someone somewhere with something we say or do. Ask the media, they'll tell you.
There are battles to wage, to be sure. There are issues to raise, to be sure. But there are some things to be ignored too. There are times we must give one another the benefit of the doubt and think the best of them before talking about the worst of them.
And the same is true when we consider taking on another's banner of persecution or offense. For a great post on this, go (HERE) and read an excellent article by Chris Gilliam. It's not for the weak of heart. Nor is it to be glanced over. It is a piece worth thinking about. selahV
