What we should do with Outsiders?

May 8, 2013

Have you ever felt like an outsider? I know I have no matter what the situation is if you are the new person in the group, or even if you are in a foreign country there will be people who just make you feel unwanted, or uneasy. So in saying this does that make us want to treat people that way, I know we say no we do not try to be that way to others. Ok I will use the example of church since this has Bible scripture with it, but we should do this no matter where we are at. You have  two visitor’s come in to church, one is well dressed and he comes in and sits next to you. Most likely you will talk with him and ask them their name and maybe tell them your name so on and so forth and you try to make them feel welcome.

The second person comes in and maybe there not very well dressed, or maybe a different nationality, looks rough around the edges, so on and so forth. They come in and set next to you, this makes you feel uneasy so you might smile at them and then fake it like you saw someone you wanted to talk to so you move over there and set. Now just think if that was you how would you feel if someone did that to you. Well this happens everywhere you go and we as a follower of Jesus Christ should show brotherly love to everyone no matter what they look like or even smell like, for God made each one of us and He did not make any junk. I know there are bad people in our world who will and does take advantage of other people, but just stop and think maybe just maybe if we treat that person like one of Gods children it might be just what it would take to turn that person around, and if we are in constant prayer with our Farther He will give us the words to say.

Colossians 4:5-6 NIV

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
