When temptation appears, ask yourself what text of Scripture will help you to repel it. If you have been reading and studying the Bible, God will give you escape from the temptation.
If the kindness of God leads to repentance, Romans 2.4, might it be the case that treating others with kindness and speaking to others with kindness will promote repentance as well?

So many people who tell others to get a relationship with God instead of getting religion, themselves belong to a religion. They wear a sectarian name. They follow a creed and human leaders. So what’s with that? Why the hypocrisy?
Why talk to yourself? You can talk to God anytime, all the time.
Believing that a change of location or situation will finally bring happiness or success disappoints every time. What’s needed is a #change of #mind.
Wisdom is listening to discern what people mean, rather than what they say.
