It is difficult to suffer when nothing you did warrants the suffering experienced. Peter spoke about the proper approach a Christian is to have when this occurs. Let your conduct (behavior in life) be of such virtue and righteousness that when others speak against—and they certainly will—when they speak against you, then on Judgment Day those false accusations will not only fall to the “floor,” but the life you lived will bring glory to God before their eyes (1 Peter 2:13). On the other hand, if this “day of visitation” is something that pertains to some earthly experience, then those false accusations will not only fall to the ground, but the accuser will be embarrassed and, perhaps, have a change of thinking and ways, maybe even submitting to God.
