When we see a brother or sister in need of spiritual correction, we first need to take time to pray and really think about the best, most positive way to speak words of correction or words of rebuke to them. We need to do it in the right spirit, and not permit ourselves to get upset when we don’t get the response that we think we should get or that the Bible says we should get from them.
