A Christian, A Muslim & A Buddhist.
Had I gone into the conversation with these wonderful ladies, closed minded, like the old me used to, I would have been on the defensive and not have a productive conversation or get to know them more. You don't have to change your beliefs to accommodate people you meet on a regular basis, but you can be respectful and have an open minded chat. You don't have to be quick to instill your values or beliefs on others, you know yourself, stand by what you believe in without wavering, and still be approachable. Let your actions do more of the talking than your words, you never know, perhaps, that might be what will speak more to them than what you say. I would say, relax, get to know people, have an empowering and educational conversation, you might learn a thing or two from people outside of your faith.
Jesus is still the only way the truth and the life, no disputing that, but He wants us to love like He did.
