Go To Your Brother

Joseph Parker, a prominent British minister at the end of the 19th century, published an open letter to express his concerns for his friend and colleague, Charles Spurgeon. The letter read, "Let me advise you to widen the circle of which you are the center. You are surrounded by offerors of incense. They flatter your weakness, they laugh at your jokes, and they feed you with compliments. My dear Spurgeon, you are too big a man for this."

 Whether his concerns were valid or not, the method that he used was lacking. A true friend will always bring their concerns to us privately, and a true friend will continue to publicly give words of support and encouragement.

This would be a great practice in our everyday lives and to carry over into our social media interactions. Why do we feel it appropriate to correct a friend on a public social media page, when we can just as easily private message them, or better yet, call them? It is very important for us as Christians to show people that we care more about them than we do winning an argument or looking superior. If we truly want to impact the world for Jesus, this would be a great place to start.

Matthew 18:15

If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.

I love you all,
