As I was studying the Word of God on last night something came to me. We esteem people, we speak well of them, but as soon as they error we talk about them, not realizing it could have been us. We, as a body of believers MUST do better. When someone reaches a time of weakness in their life where their spiritual walk needs a boost and their faults begin to show, this is the time to pray for and encourage them.
Galations 6:1- Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness: considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
It was instructed here that first, one must be spiritual to help bring restoration to the fellow brother or sister that’s overtaken in error, sin, fault. Then, it must be done in a gentle manner, but be mindful of yourself as well, because you’re not exempt from being tempted as well.
Don’t kick your brother/sister while they’re down. We all were in need of saving at some point in our lives. How soon some of us forget.
Remember, a just man falls SEVEN times and rises again (Pro 24:16)…..
