Through Social Relations Contact Is Made With the World
We should all become witnesses for Jesus. Social power, sanctified by the grace of Christ, must be improved in winning souls to the Saviour. Let the world see that we are not selfishly absorbed in our own interests, but that we desire others to share our blessings and privileges. Let them see that our religion does not make us unsympathetic or exacting. Let all who profess to have found Christ minister as He did for the benefit of men.
We should never give to the world the false impression that Christians are a gloomy, unhappy people. If we are courteous and gentle at home, we shall carry the savor of a pleasant disposition when away from home.
If we manifest forbearance, patience, meekness, and fortitude in the home, we shall be able to be a light to the world.
Adventist Home, Chapter 69, Pg 428-429
