How should we act when falsely accused or wronged?

Matthew 5:10-12 wrote:10Blessed and happy and enviably fortunate and spiritually prosperous (in the state in which the born-again child of God enjoys and finds satisfaction in God's favour and salvation, regardless of his outward conditions) are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake (for being and doing right), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven! 11Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous--with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favour and salvation, regardless of your outward conditions) are you when people revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you falsely on My account. 12Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:38-41 wrote:38You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. 39But I say to you, Do not resist the evil man [who injures you]; but if anyone strikes you on the right jaw or cheek, turn to him the other one too. 40And if anyone wants to sue you and take your undershirt (tunic), let him have your coat also. 41And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two [miles].

Mark 15:1-5 wrote:1AND IMMEDIATELY when it was morning, the chief priests, with the elders and scribes and the whole council, held a consultation; and when they had bound Jesus, they took Him away [violently] and handed Him over to Pilate. 2And Pilate inquired of Him, Are You the King of the Jews? And He replied, It is as you say. 3And the chief priests kept accusing Him of many things. 4And Pilate again asked Him, Have You no answer to make? See how many charges they are bringing against You! 5But Jesus made no further answer at all, so that Pilate wondered and marvelled.

Mark 15:16-20 wrote:16Then the soldiers led Him away to the courtyard inside the palace, that is, the Praetorium, and they called the entire detachment of soldiers together. 17And they dressed Him in [a] purple [robe], and, weaving together a crown of thorns, they placed it on Him. 18And they began to salute Him, Hail (greetings, good health to You, long life to You), King of the Jews! 19And they struck His head with a staff made of a [bamboo-like] reed and spat on Him and kept bowing their knees in homage to Him. 20And when they had [finished] making sport of Him, they took the purple [robe] off of Him and put His own clothes on Him. And they led Him out [of the city] to crucify Him.

Luke 23:34-39 wrote:34And Jesus prayed, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. And they divided His garments and distributed them by casting lots for them. 35Now the people stood by [calmly and leisurely] watching; but the rulers scoffed and sneered (turned up their noses) at Him, saying, He rescued others [from death]; let Him now rescue Himself, if He is the Christ (the Messiah) of God, His Chosen One! 36The soldiers also ridiculed and made sport of Him, coming up and offering Him vinegar (a sour wine mixed with water) 37And saying, If you are the King of the Jews, save (rescue) Yourself [from death]. 38For there was also an inscription above Him in letters of Greek and Latin and Hebrew: This is the King of the Jews. 39One of the criminals who was suspended kept up a railing at Him, saying, Are You not the Christ (the Messiah)? Rescue Yourself and us [from death]!

Christian life is counter-intuitive. :)
I am forgiven and freed. It is finished. I am not my own anymore.
