What Makes You Different?

Loving someone first is good. Action though without words will never make you distinct from the world. You’re as nice as the Mormons in your neighborhood. You’re as hospitable as the New Agers at that shop down the street. You’re as wonderful as the Buddhists. You’re quiet, loving, and peaceable.

My friend reminded me of this when I mentioned how intimidating it is to speak what you believe to those that don’t share the same beliefs and who aren’t following your God. She said you must learn about their beliefs so you can speak bridges to them. Love means having friendships with people you don’t agree with, and that’s hard.

I mean, what do you talk about when Jesus is so immersed in your soul like the roots of an elm tree that, while you can’t help but talk about Him, you see that they are either offended, do not understand, or think they are on the same page?

I prefer private conversation. You are more than welcome to email me in lieu of a comment or contact me via social media.
