My parents always encouraged me to continually work on my people skills & I’m grateful for this for two reasons:
- I’m an introvert & sometimes I can seem prickly (sometimes I AM prickly)
- People are God’s first priority so being close to God also means it’s good to love who God loves.
With that being said, I frequently come across people who are usual & even strange. How I treat people who are a few clicks off of norm is a significant reflection of my love for God. I say this based on 1John 4:20 where it says that we can’t love God & hate people simultaneously.
So no matter what kinds of people you find in your life, let’s allow God to not only love us but also love THROUGH us 🙂
