Great post! That's a lesson the Father has been teaching me the past couple of years.
I recently watched a live feed of Ravi Zacharias addressing an audience at the University of Pennsylvania (university audiences can frequently be difficult, to say the least). Ravi's presentation was a perfect example of Colossians 4:6. No matter how pointed or difficult the question his demeanor was always gracious. He certainly manifested the fragrance of Christ.
