Q: What is the desired response in times of persecution and hardship?

Q: What is the desired response should other believers not live a normal, disciplined life devoted to God?
A: Be a personal example, a model in our imitation of Christ.
Q: What is the common denominator that will bring us through external trials, internal controversy, and even inequality in personal relationships?
