Welcoming with open arms

Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don't see things the way you do.
And don't jump all over them every time they do or say something you don't agree with—
even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. 
Treat them gently.
For instance, a person who has been around for a while might 
well be convinced that he can eat anything on the table, 
while another, with a different background, might assume 
he should only be a vegetarian and eat accordingly. 
But since both are guests at Christ's table, wouldn't it be terribly rude 
if they fell to criticizing what the other ate or didn't eat? 
God, after all, invited them both to the table. 
Do you have any business crossing people off the guest list or interfering with God's welcome? 
If there are corrections to be made or manners to be learned, 
God can handle that without your help.
Romans 14:1-4

---- God invited us all to the table and if corrections need to be made or manners learned.... He's the one to do it. Not us. He doesn't need our help there....
A good thing to make note of....

Treat each other gently today, my friends- you don't know what each other is walking through.
