No one likes a biting dog, a striking snake, a sly fox, a stinky skunk or an aloof opossum! If we want to be a friend then we should do it right and be a friend like Christ's example to us; humble, loving, kind, but with the urgency of Salvation.
Proverbs 10:10 Whoever winks maliciously causes grief, and a chattering fool comes to ruin.
Honesty, integrity and pure thoughts are ways that lead to building others up.
But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3
Don't act one way and then another, simply love Christ, and from this love will flow true sweetness.
We all fall into the pit of sinful nature from time to time. No matter how hard we try to do right, we slip. The more we are in God's Word, the less we stumble and fall.
Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
Always ask, "What is it you are teaching me, God?"
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
I know what it is to be unlovable in the world. I too know what it is to be fully loved in Christ. Peace.
