Dealing with Accusation - Monday, June 6th 2016

2 Corinthians 12:16-17

Some of you admit I was not a burden to you. But others still think I was sneaky and took advantage of you by trickery. But how? Did any of the men I sent to you take advantage of you?"

You can't stop it from happening. You can try your hardest & do everything in your power to keep it from occurring but one day, it'll happen. One day, someone is going to accuse you of something. Just look at Jesus. He lived a perfect life, healed people, raised the dead and taught about God's love and yet, the religious leaders accused Him of all sorts of things. If it happened to Jesus, then it can happen to any of us.

So how do we deal with accusations when we cannot control those who accuse us? We control ourselves and live in such a way that when people accuse us, other people dismiss it as a lie. After all, what use is an accusation when your life speaks of integrity, love and charity? It may not stop accusations, but it will remove some of their power to destroy. Live for Christ and allow Him to defend you.

Life Lesson: Live in such a way that people will not believe any false accusations against you.

Dear God,
I know there are areas of my life that I can live with greater integrity and love. Help me to live for You in such a way that the accusations of others fall flat. Help me to be a witness to everyone who may be watching my life. In Jesus' name, amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
