I know that being good means nothing to those who enjoy preying on the life of the innocent. Being righteous doesn’t guarantee absolute safety. Yet, at the same time, you cannot deny how irresponsible it is to keep giving people the perfect excuse they are looking for to hurt you. Why do you keep making it so easy?
If a man seeks to hang you, at least, let him use his own rope. Why do you keep putting the rope around your own neck? If and when the trouble comes, let it come naturally. Why go in search of it?
You can’t keep putting your hands in the mouth of the wolf and not expect that you will be bitten. Who is to be blamed then, when it happens, when the wolf bites? At some point, we are going have to start holding these people responsible.
