So, where do I go from there? How do I show them that I'm not a hypocrite, that I was hurt by them saying I was? Maybe I don't...maybe it's best to just drop it and let them think what they want, hoping that my actions speak louder than anything I might say.
"A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel." Proverbs 15:18
I guess all I can do is focus on bettering my life by becoming more Christ-like and less human-like in the hopes that others take notice and understand that Christians make mistakes and have pasts too. So, no more gossiping for me...what about you?
