1 Peter 15:3


1 Peter 15:3  Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.




Hockey Chat:  Have you ever listen to an interview with a hockey player when they are questioned about their opponent.  It could be the last place team but they always find a way to say something nice and honorable about them.  They give the respect to them even though they are the adversary.  Then of course they add their strategy on how they are going to beat them.  They are courteous but confident.


Life Lesson:  Sometimes your faith will be questioned with plain curiosity and others in a sneering or condescending way.  Either of those times is a great way just to calm and coolly give a testimony of what Christ has done for you.  You may not feel you have the answers for all the questions they have of the Bible but a respectful answer of what God means to you is the best answer to give.
