Let your reasonableness become known to all men.—Phil. 4:5.

Jesus took into consideration the limitations of his disciples. He did not demand of them more than they were capable of giving. (John 16:12) Without pressuring them, Jesus encouraged his followers to ‘exert themselves vigorously’ in doing God’s will. (Luke 13:24) He did this by taking the lead and by appealing to their hearts. Jesus did not abuse the authority entrusted to him by controlling people’s lives. He neither set unreachable standards nor laid down countless rules. His approach was to motivate others by reaching their hearts with the principles behind the laws given through Moses. (Matt. 5:27, 28) In imitation of Jesus Christ, the elders refrain from making arbitrary rules or insisting on their personal viewpoints. Rather, they try to reach hearts by using godly principles, such as those outlined at Micah 6:8; 1 Corinthians 10:31-33; and 1 Timothy 2:9, 10. w 9/15/05 12-14a

1 Peter 3:8-15

8 Finally, all of you should agree and have concern and love for each other. You should also be kind and humble. 9 Don't be hateful and insult people just because they are hateful and insult you. Instead, treat everyone with kindness. You are God's chosen ones, and he will bless you. The Scriptures say, 10 "Do you really love life? Do you want to be happy? Then stop saying cruel things and quit telling lies. 11 Give up your evil ways and do right, as you find and follow the road that leads to peace. 12 The Lord watches over everyone who obeys him, and he listens to their prayers. But he opposes everyone who does evil." 13 Can anyone really harm you for being eager to do good deeds? 14 Even if you have to suffer for doing good things, God will bless you. So stop being afraid and don't worry about what people might do. 15 Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life. Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.

. Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals."—1 Cor. 15:33. http://bible.cc/1_corinthians/15-33.htm

Also see BestBiblesPlus + more and Biblos

Does adhering to the principle that is found in today’s text require that you shun unbelievers entirely? The Scriptural answer to that question is no. After all, the apostle Paul himself showed loving consideration for “people of all sorts,” including unbelievers. (1 Cor. 9:22) The very nature of Christianity demands that we show an interest in others—including those who do not share our beliefs. (Rom. 10:13-15) Indeed, how can we follow the counsel to “work what is good toward all” if we isolate ourselves from people who might need our help? (Gal. 6:10) However, there is a clear difference between being friendly toward a workmate and being that one’s close companion. Here is where another Scriptural principle enters the picture. The apostle Paul warned Christians: “Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers.”—2 Cor. 6:14. w07 5/1 1:8, 9
