In a recent conversation with a coworker, I was discussing an issue of communication. While there are decisions being made that directly impact my students, those making the decisions do not want any input. Thinking and talking about this reminded me of how we are to deal with each other and our sin. How do we correct each other?
There are many times in our lives when we sin or we experience the sin of others. The sin in our lives needs to be corrected. When we see the fault in the actions of others, we need to let them know in a way that is private and reassuring of God's grace and mercy. In the same way, when we sin, we need to be willing to accept the reminders and correction from others. Through helping each other, we can maintain our focus on and relationship with God. We can then be prepared to work for His Kingdom!
Be prepared to give and receive correction as you work to become and bring others closer to God!
Thank You for correcting me and for providing others that can correct me and keep me on track. Help me to both give and receive correction gracefully as I prepare and work for Your Kingdom. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
