Synopsis: It’s frustrating when we feel misunderstood. When people misinterpret our actions or words, or even spread false reports about our motives, we instinctively want to defend ourselves and justify our position. That’s one reason that speaking the gospel is hard. People often misunderstand the gospel and sometimes speak ill of us but Paul gives us an example of someone who, despite being falsely accused, kept his focus on proclaiming Jesus even in the face of hostility.
