Called to Care – Day 16

A negative response to your work

Bible text(s)

13Who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good? 14But even if you should suffer for doing what is right, how happy you are! Do not be afraid of anyone, and do not worry. 15But have reverence for Christ in your hearts, and honour him as Lord. Be ready at all times to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you, 16but do it with gentleness and respect. Keep your conscience clear, so that when you are insulted, those who speak evil of your good conduct as followers of Christ will be ashamed of what they say. 17For it is better to suffer for doing good, if this should be God's will, than for doing evil.

You may at times have to face people who do not approve of what you are doing as a caregiver. The Bible gives us guidelines as to how we can handle such confrontations.
