Am I a bully?

We tend to think of bullies as large, loud, obnoxious types, but bullies come in all sizes, personalities and political and religious persuasions. Do I put down or judge others who don’t agree with my views on politics, religion, etc., etc. Or am I patient with all people in order that by my love and witness I might win all to Christ? I don’t have to agree with others in order to love them. We should use Christ as our model, and the apostle Paul during his missionary journeys. Patience. (2 Timothy 4:2) Not one of my strong suits. I need to be in constant prayer about it, lest I fall into the bullying trap. “They will know that we are Christians by our love for one another.” (John 13:35). Loving people that don’t agree with us is perhaps the hardest thing we are called to do as Christians.
