"Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth."
Reflect and Respond:
Expect to run into difficult people. After all, this is a difficult world. But their anger doesn't have to fuel your anger, because through Jesus, you have hope in ALL situations. Let your patience and love for others reflect that hope today. After all, you never know who is watching!
Lord, I ask for your wisdom today, to see others with Your eyes and to hear them with Your ears, Your perspective. Give me grace to be kind, even to those who aren't kind. Show me how to gently instruct those who oppose Your truth, trusting You to change their hearts in time. Amen.
