Confront with Kindness

Be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.2 Timothy 4:2

It is quite natural, and even spiritual, to feel sorrow and heaviness when we see the professed followers of Christ walking in the ways of the world. And our first impulse may easily be to go straight to them and upbraid them indignantly.

But such methods are seldom successful. The heat in our spirit may not be from the Holy Spirit, and if it is not then it can very well do more harm than good….

In this as in everything else Christ is our perfect example. A prayerful, face-down meditation on the life of Christ will show us how to oppose with kindness and reprove with charity. And the power of the Holy Spirit within us will enable us to follow His blessed example. OGM110-111

The baptism of the Holy Spirit will always bring a spirit of love…and…sweetness and charity toward all men. HS377
