Don’t make people win your kindness. Give them a bye. Be kind to everyone.
We humans are harder to work with than Alexa and other devices. We often just don’t do what we’re told. We like to believe that we’re hungry for the truth, but we frequently don’t like how it tastes and refuse to consume it.
If you feel the need to argue, argue with the anger, insecurity, disappointment, frustration, and sin that is within your own heart.
To argue with someone who refuses to even consider your point of view is a frustrating waste of time, going nowhere. If you argue with an insulter, he/she will insult you even more.
Don’t write people off because of what they look like. They’re far more complicated than that! It’s easy to be wrong about people, to misjudge them based on a physical characteristic or on something they say or do or believe. There’s something good about every person. Sometimes it is very hard to find, but search for it anyway.
If your logic is solid, you can be kind when you state your position to those who disagree with you. If you won’t be nice to people who disagree with you, your friends and family better watch out cause their time is coming. When you’re sharing the joy of wholesome, uplifting humor with someone, getting along is easy.
As the pinnacle of God’s creation, people need to be loved, respected, and encouraged to live in His presence. If you’re frustrated with human politics, seek the kingdom of God instead. It’s awesome! Jesus wants to lead us beyond human hierarchy and into His monarchy–the kingdom of God!
