When To Correct a Brother?

Often we are in agony wondering whether we should "forbear" with our brother's foibles and weaknesses (Eph 4:2), or "restore them in a spirit of gentleness" as prescribed in Gal. 6:1. Between Two Worlds has an excellent short discussion here on this crucial subject. I found it most helpful. It is a tool to  use in marriage, our parenting, or our relationships at church. 

As always, your thoughts on this short essay are appreciated.

  1. This simple tool is extremely helpful for me as a I think about a wide range of issues, including "basic conflict resolution" in work settings and the normal day-to-day things in friendship and marriage where I find myself picking at things in the "lower right quadrant". This article does a good job of succinctly pointing out that the juice is not worth the squeeze relationally on these things, so that was convicting and helpful. Thanks for posting. - Brian U
