Think About IT: Sins of Others

Anyone can rebuke a Christian for his or her sin, but it takes a mature spiritual Christian to give godly rebuke with a heart for restoration. A true heart for the restoration of a brother includes a willingness to be intimately involved in the process and a keen awareness of one’s own propensity to be overtaken by sin.

“Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted” (Galatians 6:1).
