“ ￼Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. If a youth is caught in fornication, in drugs, in a rebellious lifestyle, there is only one solution to his problem: if he heeds to God’s Word, he can purify his lifestyle. Conversely, for him to avoid a way of life that will bring dishonor and ruin to him and to his family, he must guard his life according to those directions that he finds in the Bible.
“Remove from me reproach and contempt…” (Psalm 119:22) The best way to deal with slander is to pray about it. Don’t let anyone or anything keep you from keeping God’s Word. God will either remove it or remove the sting from it. Often my attempts at clearing myself have been failures. It is like trying to get an ink stain from a shirt. The more we try to rub it out, the bigger it gets.
