When we go to the Lord first, we often don't need to go to anyone else, because the Lord will help or heal us. Sometimes, the Lord’s plan includes having others be a part of your healing.
We should be extra careful with what we say (and do) around unbelievers.
When people accuse us, we want to defend ourselves. Sometimes, we should defend ourselves. Oftentimes, we should be quiet and let the Lord defend us.
When accused, if we want to defend ourselves, God will let us. If we will remain silent, God will defend us.
Unbelievers are watching and listening.
