“A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people” (2 Timothy 2:24)

Paul taught Timothy how to respond to EGR (Extra Grace Required) people. He told him not to quarrel, be kind, teach and finally just “be patient” (be forbearing, enduring). In other words, put up with them. Paul goes on to say that when we are gentle with EGRs, perhaps God will change their hearts and they will “come to their senses and escape the devil’s trap.” If you don’t know any EGRs, look in the mirror, it may be you.
