Do you try and defend yourself when untruths are spoken of you – things that you, other people, and even God, know are lies? Do you try and defend yourself when people accuse you of things you did not do?
It is natural, and human nature to react and defend ourselves. It’s not easy to keep our mouths closed.
But, it takes a mature Christian to say nothing – to not defend themselves when false accusations come against them. It shows our spiritual and human maturity when we say, nothing. It takes someone who trusts in their God to defend them in due time, if need be.
Psalm 20:1: “The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;”
Psalm 59:1: “Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.”
Proverbs 19:5: “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.”
Jesus did not defend himself when the Jews mocked him, spit on him, plucked his beard, called him names, accused him of blasphemy, and crucified him.
We should not be surprised when false accusations are made toward us, for it has been prophecied that in the last days accusers would come. Read: 2 Timothy 3:1-5
