The correct answer is 'C'. While people in leadership might be incorrect, God sometimes puts them in those positions for a reason. He might have us in a testing season and want to see what we're going to do. The correct response is taking it to God FIRST. But, please know that wherever there's a threat or it feels like abuse, the Lord said, "Rebuke their personalities."
Rebuking their personalities means that THEIR words don't cling to you. The devil plays aggressive and controlling games to get under your skin. He wants to cause the spirit of offense and if you get offended, then you're walking in sin and can't hear from God. Jesus explains this in Mark 11:22-26,
"And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses."
Now that you understand why the devil wants to offend, here's why the other answers are incorrect:
A good story is about how David overcame Saul when Saul was stalking him. David didn't return evil for evil. David went to God and said in so many words, "Lord, I didn't do anything this manager. I've been good to him and he's attacking me. I can't come against him because I know there are rules. So, I'm calling on YOU for help." And, God did just that.
God eventually made David king. The tests he went through with Saul were to groom him for greater. And God is grooming us for greater, too. But, what about the fact that it's not fair? Yup. God KNOWS that sometimes managers are not fair but God might also want to build your character to make you STRONGER despite what they're doing. And, don't worry. God will deal with that manager.
The Bible says that Saul's armies were attacked and his sons killed. He eventually fell on his own sword. So, do what God says to do and seek Him first. Then, let God handle that boss. Remember, EVERY knee shall bow. The Bible states in Philippians 2:10-11, "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father." God's got this and He's got YOU!
When dealing with a confrontational boss, pray FIRST and then use the CALM Method:
