To truly love our neighbor is to watch themselves, we should live at peace to all men, even if they attack you, be NOT to have bitterness in them. Do not say anything to defend yourself. Let them have their slander and God will do the rest, "Live at peace in your heart" let God be your defender.
Be considerate to all and stand up for yourself be humble but be in control with humility.
If you receive any award always put the spot light to Jesus.

Isaiah 29:13 inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men.
