2 Timothy 2:24-25
And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth.
Human souls are the most valuable things in all Creation; precious enough that the Lord sent a part of Himself to die so that they could be saved. If that’s true, it makes sense why the way we treat others matters so much to God. This brief window of time we call life is where the eternal fate of souls is decided. A person’s experiences, the decisions they make, and the people who influence them are all factors that can affect if they come to Christ in their lifetime. Who are we to treat them poorly? Treat others with love and with gentleness; the same gentleness that Jesus would’ve shown you if He were here right now. You might be the only good look at Christ that someone will ever get. Make it a good one!
