Be angry, but do not take offense

It strikes me that getting angry is more Christian than being offended. Anger faces outwards – is directed at something – and depending on the sort of something at which one is angry, it may be exactly the right response. On the other hand, offense is inevitably selfish, focusing on and drawing its energy from the perceived wrong done to me.
