Restore Gently

Today’s Scripture: Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Galatians 6:1

The story is told of a pastor who committed suicide because he accidentally sent a nude picture of himself to his church WhatsApp group. It was alleged that he intended sending the picture to his lover who is also a member of the church. There are other instances of people who have tread that path because they were afraid of the reactions of others to their wrongdoing.

However today’s scripture admonishes us restore those caught up in sin gently, bearing in mind that temptation comes to all. As Christian brethren, we should cultivate the habit of forgiving each other freely, even when one has to be rebuked, it should be done in love with a goal to restore rather than destroy!

Temptation knows no boundaries hence we must deal with defaulters with meekness led by the spirit of God.

Prayer for today:
Father, I know I’m not perfect. Help me not to judge others and forgive them as You have done. In Jesus name, Amen
