The next time you’re misunderstood use it as an opportunity to count on God to protect and defend you. Ask Him to fight the battle for you and resist the temptation to avenge yourself.
We live in a time where wrongdoing is rationalized and excused. We’re quick to blame others...and slow to accept responsibility for our actions. However, the reality is no one else makes our choices for us. A sign of maturity is admitting our offences and making things right.
Living in light of Christ’s return changes our perspective. And when we realize we will give an account for every idle word when we stand before Him it also changes our conduct.
