2 Timothy 2:24 (NLT)

24 A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.

Current wisdom is “be who you are.”  That works well as a follower of Christ.  If I am a follower of Christ I am not naturally argumentative, I speak words of encouragement and I exhibit love, even to those who don’t love me.  

Working on it!
