Insults into Opportunity

Make a sacrifice by not saying the nasty word or answering an insulting remark. For in that way, we lower ourselves to the vulgarity we condemn. No one will ever get ahead of us so long as he stays behind to kick us. (Fulton Sheen's, Wartime Prayer book)

This is where we can gain some gracious merit in apologetics. When we do not return evil for evil we are in a way being an image of Christ. We are able to take the insult and offer it up as a “sacrifice”. The Internet is a poor medium to convey sacrifice and love, which are primary to Christianity. We need to rejoice when given the opportunity.
