As Mother Teresa states, people will be people. It’s part of our human nature. Sometimes, no matter how good our intentions may be, some people will lie about us, falsely accuse us, judge us unfairly without all the facts, treat us terribly, gossip about us, cheat us, and rob us. Keep in mind those people will have to face God someday with their wrong choices.
What are we to do as Christ followers?
Stay salty, Do good anyway! Give our best. It is a tough one under such circumstances, but it is a requirement of God for our own benefit!
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
… Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Romans 12:17-18
“Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” Mark 9:50
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. Romans 14:19
Ultimately, what really matters is how God sees us and where we stand before Him.
