“Correction Through Love”

Key Verse

“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.” Galatians 6:1

Text — Galatians 6:1-6


Joses and John are twin brothers. One day, they had an argument on who should first be served. While this was going on, their mom walked into the kitchen and tried to correct them in love. Lovingly, she explained to them the reasons they should consider others first. They were able to settle their argument in a loving way.

Correction through love is a way of settling differences in an amicable way. It is a means of promoting peace, unity and fellowship among friends, family members and fellow believers. As friends of Jesus, we have a duty to correct one another in love, we are to be like our Lord Jesus Christ who correct people in love. Christ never condemned a sinner but always seeking to save him. When you correct in love you will get a better response and God will be happy with you. Go and meet the people you have done wrong to, make peace with them. Also make it a point of duty to always pray for your brothers, sisters and friends.
