An honest mistake should not discredit an otherwise truthful person. (Jesse Deloe, editor)
We all make mistakes and quite often they are honestly made without evil intention. Such mistakes can and should be corrected quickly and should not discredit an individual’s reputation. In fact, we often learn best from the mistakes we have made. Let’s be less judgmental of others’ errors and more helpful in giving loving correction.
Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently (Galatians 6:1).
