You are a refuge to those who don’t know Me; do not hasten to condemn, but reprove in love. Be kind and gentle, understanding that My love encompasses the wayward and the downtrodden heart.
Many times one acts out of wounds not healed, festering within. Do not quench their spirit by being hasty to find fault, rather, give them opportunity to seek truth and repentance through the guidance of My Holy Spirit.
“Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.” Col 4:5
