It's a rare thing these days...

It really is a rare thing these days to find a Christian who’s willing to lovingly confront a brother or sister in Christ who is in error according to the Scripture. But can you agree with me that it’s even rarer to discover that diamond of a Christian who will humbly receive correction with an attitude that exemplifies humble Christian behavior? “I’m sorry! I’ll try not to do that again.” “I see that I’ve hurt you; will you forgive me please?” “You’re absolutely right – I was wrong and I’m sorry. I’ll do my best to change.” These words of genuine humility are the exception rather than the rule in these troubling days. These things ought not to be so – do you agree?
