Set the example by being the person of character and integrity, and do not repay evil for evil. Right is never wrong, and godly character cannot be condemned.
June's Message, Day 1:
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. Titus 2:7-8 NIV
It is hard to point fingers at and overly criticize someone when they consistently set good examples by doing what is right and good for others. If you live a life of godly character and integrity in all aspects of your dealings with others, those who condemn, criticize, or complain about you will look to be the fool. Make them be ashamed by showing your humility, soundness of speech and character, and having an honest reputation known throughout your peers. Do not repay evil for evil, but rise above the negative verbiage and actions and show them the mindset and character of Christ. Yes, the going may be difficult at times, but you will be victorious in the end and be at peace along the way. Doing what's right will never be wrong, and godly character can never be condemned.
