People do not care how much you know, until they know how much you care.
The Word of God says that knowledge puffs up, but love edifies (1 Corinthians 8:1).
The Word of God says that all men will know that we are His disciples, by our love for one another (John 13:35).
The Word of God says that out of faith, hope, and love, the greatest of the three, is love (1 Corinthians 13:13).
If you want to reach out to someone, the greatest avenue by which you can achieve this, is through your love. If we go around being fruit inspectors by means of judging, analyzing, gossiping, finding fault in people, than love does not rule and reign in our lives. Out of the 66 books that compose the Bible, 613 commands in the Old Testament and 1,050 commands in the New Testament, the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. And the second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as our self (Mark 12:30-31).Who is your neighbor? Everyone and anyone!
