First pray! It is God Who moves and convicts. Secondly, ask if they ever caused harm to another... Purposefully or unintentionally. The answer will be yes because we have all lied to our parents, took the best parking in the rain when another needed it... These examples will open a door to share that message of Jesus. There is a Newberu book called "The Whipping Boy". In that book the prince had a slave who got all his beatings everyone the prince misbehaved. Jesus is our Whipping Boy! All the way to Calvary.
How do birds know when to migrate or where to go? How do other animals know when to hibernate and wake up in the spring? How do plants start to grow? I know there are more deeper ways to go with this, but that is what I have for now.
I did not believe. I now do. I used to receive many "responses". Some were advice, such as a how-to manuals. Some actually felt degrading- "let me tell you why you're wrong". What led me to Christ was SEEING not hearing... a Christian friend who kept planting seeds despite our opposing views. A Christian who was there for me, a true friend who chose not to argue or convince. The kindness she showed, the love conveyed, her patience and acceptance of me even when my behavior probably wasn't what she deemed "acceptable". I can go on. My point is when I saw the "fruits of the spirit" I gradually realized that was what I needed/wanted. She didn't tell me scriptures to read- she lived them. I try to never underestimate the "seeds" I am able to plant.
