"Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ." NIV
"That whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." KJV
If we believe we can blame our ungodly behaviors on the terrible circumstances we're in, we are mistaken. We are given the mandate as well as the ability to behave consistently with the good news of Jesus Christ. No matter what situation we find ourselves, we are to live and respond in Godly ways.
Heavenly Father, we ask your forgiveness for failing to take personal responsibility for our wrong doings. Help us, Lord, to always make ourselves accountable to you and live in unity with you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
