Don't Be Aggrieved

One man was publicly offending a sage :
You’re an atheist! You’re drinker! Almost a thief!

The sage just smiled in response.

Another young man dressed in the silk trousers watching that scene asked the sage:

'How can you tolerate such offences? Don’t you feel hurt?'

The sage smiled again and told him: 'Come with me.'

The young man followed him to the dusty lumber-room. The sage lighted the kindling and began rummaging in the trunk, where found completely worthless tattered robe. He threw it to the young man and said: 'Try it, it will match you.'

The young man took a robe, looked at it and resented:
'What these dirty rags are for? I am well dressed, and you must be crazy!'

He threw the robe back to the sage.

'You see, ' said the sage, 'You did not want to try rags. Similarly, I did not want to try those dirty words that man threw at me.'

To be aggrieved by offences means to try on rags someone throws at us.

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
