We must be careful what we say because we may never be able to undo the damage our statements may cause. If a false allegation is made against us we should deny it pray that others will not believe it and spread it and keep living faithfully. We should not be quick to believe rumors.
The leaders of God’s people must be fearless and perceptive. When the devil tries to intimidate us we must continue to live steadfast in the word of God. And we must beware of situations where we are likely to be tempted.
