a word for the christian “activist”..

we are called to be peacemakers, not quarrelsome..

we are called to be kind to everyone..

we are called to teach, not condemn..

we are called to patiently endure evil..

we are called to be gentle with our opponents..

 

22 So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil,25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth,26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

 

This is from today’s reading plan..it comes from 2 Timothy 2:22-26.

Shouldn’t kindness, endurance, and gentleness be NORMAL for the believer? I mean, they are the fruit of the spirit..

Let’s be People of the Second Chance..

How will you (or how do you currently) approach injustice and evil?
