Dealing with the World

Recommended Posts

  • Members

   What methods have you found successful in dealing with non-believers? I'm talking about everyday life, not in evangelism. At work, with colleagues that try to get a rise out of you. Family that try to belittle or mock your beliefs. I'm struggling really hard, I feel like 'the world' is one of the greatest attackers when it comes to a believer's walk with God. It influences everything. Evil people will try and destroy your joy or create negative events in your life. This stuff is something that believers cannot control. I wish God would intervene at times, sometimes I feel like anything random can happen anytime.

      Whenever I know there's a chance to deal with this sort of situation, I plan to behave properly. I never want to dishonor God, but saying is easier than doing it. People have a talent in using negative words that will stick in your mind. Maybe I'm too sensitive and care about people too much. I'm not sure..

    What has worked for you when people were trying to harm you verbally/physically?

Pro 15:1
(1)  A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

Mat 5:44
(44)  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Sorry to use Bible on you, but it works.

Don't let them get you angry - answer them as softly as possible.

Humour can help, if you can do funny, but not in a snarky way. 

And pray for them - I find it is hard to be too angry with someone if you are praying for them.
