If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body.

4. Reach Everyone

2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slow in doing what he promised—the way some people understand slowness. But God is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but he wants all people to change their hearts and lives.
