If possible, so far as it depends on you, live at peace with all men.Romans 14:19
So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another. (Romans 14:19)
σκάνδαλον (skandalon) in the Greek is the word for offense. It means literally to take the bait.
To become offended means to take the bait.
Don’t be snared by taking offense at something someone has done or said. Be a peacemaker.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
