Don’t Step on Someone’s Belief

Don’t tell someone they are wrong…they just get defensive and will not listen. Listen to what they have to say. They believe they are right as much as you believe you are right.

Share what you believe in a non-threatening way…at the right moment. Don’t try to convince…just share. By the way, sharing is not “preaching.”

Consider planting a garden. You place seed in the soil…you share. It takes time for seed to grow…sometimes, there is an abundant crop…sometimes, only some of the seed grows…sometimes, nothing!

It is the same with sharing. All you can do is plant the seed…and hope. The rest is beyond your pay grade. Plant from knowledge…share from the heart.

  2. Good advise we need to always remember. When we listen, truly listen, God just may let us hear the need they have and that God wants to use as our starting point to share Him.

  5. In my life, I’ve come to learn that sharing the Gospel from my heart, to a heart in need of Christ’s saving love, is a grace that is given by the Holy Spirit. I am incapable on my own. Much of the time, I believe we share the Gospel through our daily lives and the love we show to those around us. We are constantly being watched.

    Thank you for the reminder. Sometimes there is such a fine line between sharing and pushing away. (especially with children and loved ones)

    Have a blessed day,
    Bernadette
