If I have to work to make my defense, it's not worth it.
Strive to defend others who are treated wrongly.
But hardly break a sweat defending yourself.
That is what I suggest to you.
First, in light of Jesus.
He never strived to defend Himself.
Second, I refer you to Proverbs 15:1.
"A soft answer turneth away wrath:
but grievous words stir up anger."
Choosing "grievous" words rather than "soft" ones...
Only makes matters worse.
It's like pouring kerosene on a campfire.
What are "grievous" words?
They are literally "heavy, toilsome, and laborious."
My point is....get to the point.
In any disagreement simply get to the point.
Then let it be.
