How can you influence people? How can you make them see the attractiveness of Christianity? How can you touch people’s lives? Listen to what Paul said, and judge whether it would help you, if others did the following things to you, and then practice it with others,

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep (Romans 12.15). 

Often we think that we have to say something, but not necessarily. Rejoice in other’s joys and when they weep, weep right along with them. You will make a huge impression on people, if you show them that they impress you.

Questions:

  • Do you have difficulty connecting with people?
  • If so, do you try to understand them or do you expect them to understand you?
