Week of Repentance: Day 7

24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth,26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil,who has taken them captive to do his will.”

God’s Word is always timely, but this really convicted me this morning of all the times that I seek to prove I’m right, rather than to demonstrate God’s love. So many of our divisions come from this same desire.

Praying this morning for the wisdom and grace to care more about demonstrating the gospel to those who oppose it than about proving them wrong.
