To accept one another is not only a kind gesture , it is also a heavenly command. God expects it from us. The reason why? He accepts us unconditionally, and therefore we owe it to our fellow men. Strangers, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, family, believers, and the likes, we must strive to make them feel welcome...and safe in our presence. We should radiate the Lord's caring and warm heart to the world. Accept people as they are, without trying to change them all the time. Leave that part up to God.
" Therefore accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given the glory." -Romans 15:7 (NLT)
