STOP AND THINK – If it is hard to accept a rebuke, even a private one, it is harder still to administer one in loving humility. (D.A. Carson, theologian and professor)
We all know how difficult it is to be criticized or corrected—even when we know it’s well deserved. But when we have to correct someone else, how sensitive are we to that person’s feelings? Recalling our own feelings and uncertainties when we were corrected should help us correct others, as Carson suggests, with loving humility.
If someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. (Galatians 6:1)
