Pīti sutta, Aṅguttara Nikāya 5.176
"Householders, you give the community of mendicants requisites of robes, alms food, a place to sleep, & medicine to support the sick, but a householder should not be pleased simply with the thought of, ‘we provide the community of mendicants requisites of robes, alms food, a place to sleep, & medicine to support the sick.’ Therefore, householders you should practice in this way also, ‘we shall from time to time, abide having calmed in the joy of seclusion also.’ This is the way a householder should also practice.”
He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
