Acts 24:25-26
“As Paul talked about righteousness, self-control, and the judgement to come, Felix was afraid and said “That’s enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.” At the same time he was hoping that Paul would offer him a bribe, so he sent for him frequently and talked with him.” 
Paul had to have known that Felix’ motives were not right. But instead of giving in and offering an illegal bribe for his freedom, or refusing to continue speaking with him, Paul instead seized the opportunity to continue sharing the gospel with this man. The correct response to corrupt situations, is to walk in the gospel of the incorruptible savior. 
Not all situations will be ‘right’. People will try to manipulate and spin things for their own purposes– It’s just human nature! Through it all, I must just keep walking with Christ, and sharing His good news. My job is not to decide if they ‘deserve’ the gospel or not: I’ve simply been called to carry light to dark places. 
God, thank you for this reminder that it is your gospel, not mine. Help me to carry your light to each situation I face, regardless of the motives or heart of those I encounter. Thank you for loving me, though I don’t deserve it.
