A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath
By Dennis Miranda
I recently had a witnessing encounter with two students. Matt is Roman Catholic and his friend Nate is an agnostic. Midway through our conversation, something that Matt said prompted me to pause for a moment and hand each of them an invite to our Bible study.
However, during that break, Nate, who earlier admitted he didn't believe in God, took a moment to say how much he appreciated the way I spoke to them. He was sincere and I believe he used the word 'respectful'.
This was an encouragement to me but also important for me because the last thing I want is to purposely offend or come across as offensive. The gospel, to some, is offensive enough. 1 Peter 3:15
