The world (my nation; any nation) has EVIL always part of ANYTHING that is GOOD OR CAN BE GOOD. EVIL ROAMS seeking whom to 'devour' (bring to it's side).
SOLUTION: KNOW YOUR OWN GOOD (your worth WHERE it counts and to whom it counts and seek to GIVE that 'who' GLORY).
When others malign your good name, gossip about you, taunt, mock, poke at to get a reaction, SCREAM AND RANT in your face with or without good cause (though educated persons NEVER rant or scream). If this is 'the culture' of a business environment; you need to SET THE BAR HIGHER ... with the GRACE of your knowing how to be... and EDUCATE them. LET THEM HAVE IT with all the kindness and patience and learning you have and SEEK NOT any recompense FROM THEM. (If you get some; i.e.: a thank you, a smile, a bit of kindness back; all the better but DO THE OPPOSITE of what you DON'T LIKE in the BULLY; and that bully will get pushed back and you won't be charged with anything of wrong.
To suffer for doing good is GRACE before GOD. (1st Peter) but it is not grace to suffer if you do wrong.
YES FOLKS...IT IS A DARK WORLD where MOST ARE IGNORANT OF THE SPIRIT OF WHAT BRINGS PEACE, COOPERATION, MUTUALITY OF ONE-NESS OF MIND. The reasons for it are varied; and too much to go into here.
If bullying in schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and marriages are becoming extreme... ONE SIDE has to be THE BIGGER and start ACTING 'IN SPIRIT' OF WHAT IS CALLED maturity or OTHER CENTERED MANNERS. / and business will not be able to fire. (they need reason) TAKE IT ALL... TAKE THE SCOURGING, THE BRUTALITY, THE HARSHNESS... In imitation of the one who also did and eventually was EXALTED... to a LIFE of AUTHENTIC HEAVEN.
No pain... No gain. (and if one can't take it; THEN YES... by all means LEAVE A PLACE... God doesn't want us hurt so we can't fight; HIS WAY again.
When enough of GOD'S OWN who honor GOD begin acting IN GOD... our enemies will be diminished BY LOVE. (but NEVER condone THEM in their evil ways)
CONDEMN BAD ATTITUDES AND ACTIONS 'to them' subjectively... AFFIRM them as GOOD as they do good... OR build them UP to know GOOD; BY EXAMPLE in this IS THE WORD 'LEADER.'
