STOP AND THINK – You will never influence someone who doesn’t first feel accepted by you. (Mike Lee, American pastor)

Jack Kemp, late American athlete and politician, put it this way, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” Arguing accomplishes little and rarely changes anyone’s mind. Working in someone’s best interest (the biblical idea of love) is much more effective in any effort to help someone else.

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. (1 Peter 3:8)
