Is the “tough guy” image appropriate for a “servant of the Lord”?

She claimed to be a Christ-follower – a faithful servant of the Lord, but her persona – her demeanor communicated… “Hey, I’m one tough diva! I’ve got a chip on my shoulder and you’d better not touch it!” I don’t think she was even aware how she came across! I asked her about that one day…

Man or woman, a “servant of the Lord” should not come across that way. In fact I read about it this morning…

“The Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome, but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his (or her) opponents with gentleness.” (2 Timothy 2:24)

Christlike! That’s how I want to come across to others! Christlike! Help me Lord today!
