Concern motivates consideration in witnessing.
When we have been burdensome, as the apostle
of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as
a nurse cherisheth her children ( Thess. 2:6b, 7).
As a model witness, Paul compares his method of
operation among the Thessalonians to that of a
nursing mother. "In witnessing for Christ we were
as tender with you as a nursing mother is with a baby.
You will guard him and keep him in perfect and
constant peace... because he HOPES confidently
in You. (Isa. 26:3)
