I do not know how best to answer this question, but years ago, while living on Guam, I heard a brother say, “I speak little because I am tired of eating feet.” I have always liked that. Is this the best approach? I do not know. But it is an approach that I live by.
I suppose the best approach is to live as the Lord lived; one can’t improve on what He did. While I have not always lived by that standard, I sure do try; it is such a good one to learn from.
