Attempts to defend self is always futile.
If your doing is right, never attempt to defend yourself.
Let time and people discover you and your genuineness.
Allow your work not your words speak for you now and always. Matt.5:11, 12;
Jesus answered these who were sent to be bless by John, Go and show John again those things which Ye do hear and see.” – 11: 2 – 6
Nothing defends a man like his works. Your work is your true worth.
Your record is your reckoning.
When issues arise about you, always be eager to ask people to check the records.
Open up to be audited by superiors and subordinates.
“And who shall harm you if you be follower of that which is good.” – 1Pet.3:13
