People need to needed, loved, encouraged, helped, be-friended. We are social creatures. It is true our society is causing us to withdraw into ourselves more and more. We are told to 'fear' strangers from a young age, we see crime, hurt, selfishness, and grumpy people everywhere we turn.
99% of people appreciate a smile, a word of kindness, a gesture of goodwill. The ONLY time they don't is if they are afraid, suspicious, or angry with you. And even then you are witnessing to others you may be watching.
What people don't like is to be kept talking when they are in a rush, made to feel inferior, talking to someone with an 'agenda', etc. Jehovah's Witnesses are one of the fasted growing religions so talking to strangers is working!!!
Do you want to be Christ-like? Jesus was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, & familiar with suffering (Isaiah 53:3). HAVE courage and speak up for the Lord.
So how do you approach people? See 'What to Say'.
