A Gentle Spirit

Reg Grant on March 4, 2009 in DTS Devotional

As a young Christian, I‘d argue with a fencepost. But I learned that that, while I could win an argument, I would sometimes lose a friend. “And the Lord’s slave must not engage in heated disputes but be kind toward all, an apt teacher, patient, correcting opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance and then knowledge of the truth and they will come to their senses and escape the devil’s trap where they are held captive to do his will.” (2 Timothy 2:24-26) Be patient. Better to win a friend for Christ than an argument for yourself.
