God's concern...

"God is concerned with her soul, not just her behavior." (unChristian, page 196)

Everyone I meet has an eternal soul. Everyone you meet is loved by God. Can we treat everyone in ways that draw them toward a loving God rather than push them away from Him?

I get things backwards sometimes. I rant and rave about behavior and forget that Jesus came to save "sinners" (that includes me).

Would you admit it with me? Judging people's behavior is generally not helpful. We get defensive when we're judged by others.

Loving people where they are - that's powerful. It's what Jesus did. That's why "sinners" flocked to him. Maybe our friends would be more interested in Him if we were more interested in their soul than their behavior.
