“Likewise exhort the young men to be sober-minded, in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one being an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.” Titus 2:6-8
Christians will have opponents.
Lord, thank You for making a way for us to live so that nothing evil can be said of us. And here’s a simple poem . . .
Even though quiet
isolated and alone
lives lived for Jesus
will still be known
a contrast to
the darkness around
opposed but in them
no evil is found.
