WHO DID JESUS EVER TURN AWAY?
Strive to be friendly and helpful; that will affect all who come near you. Always try to find something to love in people, and be courteous and understanding. Do not send anyone away without a word of cheer and a feeling that you really care about them. Don’t disappoint God by rejecting anyone He has put in your path. “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1 John 2:6).
