Correction

Galatians 6:1-2

6 Brothers, suppose someone is caught doing something wrong. You who have the Spirit should set him right, but in a spirit of humility, keeping an eye on yourselves so that you won’t be tempted too. 2 Bear one another’s burdens — in this way you will be fulfilling the Torah’s true meaning, which the Messiah upholds.

Correction is never easy, and when I have had to receive it the shame of knowing others know of my sin made it difficult to receive. Yet my parents, leaders and brothers who have corrected me, praise God, did so as Sha’ul describes, not gloating or with superiority to crush me but with care and humility to lift me up to be a better person. Thank you Abba for all the living ox goads You have put in my life. Amen.
