Do it the 'Christian' way
1 Corinthians 16:13,14 - Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity.
When people refer to 1 Corinthians 16:14, it is usually put as 'let all things be done with charity (love)', they fail to see the word 'your'. It is not 'the things you do' but 'the things you want to be done when you stand in faith'.
The Lord does not want us to be men pleasers. He wants us to stand for the truth, according to our faith. It does not please Him when we compromise with Him for people; it is not called charity or love.
Compromising with the truth is not called love, nor putting or doing the truth outright like 'in the face', is right. God wants us to do the right thing in the best possible way so that the purpose is not lost. Love should be seen in our every (true) word, action or deed.
Our 'Christian' factor should be seen by people.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, your patience and tolerance with man and his doings shows your love. You waited for the right time and did all things in the most perfect way. Your ways are perfect. Lord help is use wisdom, knowledge, discernment and love in all our doings and communications...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
