STOP AND THINK – [Contrary to] people-pleasers, only people-lovers are able to confront. (Edward T. Welch, author)

Some folks seem to live their lives in an attempt to please everybody—never offend anyone and certainly don’t confront them in any way. Yet, Welch seems to suggest that those who really love people are willing to face up to their friends, addressing error or faults that need to be corrected. Refusing to do so reveals a lack of love and concern for others.

If someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. (Galatians 6:1)
