Webster's 1st ed., 1828

Because I am well born, of a Royal Seed, I treat others with noble dignity.

Because conversion is the result of God's Spirit, I do not attempt to force others through violence or threats.

I am committed to showing personal care and concern in meeting the needs of others.
I Thessalonians 2:7

I am sensitive to the weaknesses and limitations of others and respond to them with a soft answer and patient encouragement.

I recognize that outward gruffness is often a self-made shield to protect a wounded and hurting spirit.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
