"But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness, instructing those that oppose themselves, if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will."
2 Timothy 2: 23-26
The Lord has been teaching me many lessons through this passage. I pray that He will help me to be gentle (to all men - not simply those easy to get along with), apt to teach, patient, and meek.
