Bible: 1 Peter 3:14-17

3:14 But in fact, if you happen to suffer 1  for doing what is right, 2  you are blessed. But do not be terrified of them 3  or be shaken. 4  3:15 But set Christ 5  apart 6  as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess. 7  3:16 Yet do it with courtesy and respect, 8  keeping a good conscience, so that those who slander your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame when they accuse you. 9  3:17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if God wills it, 10  than for doing evil.
