Talk It Through

in Relationships Speech/Words

Here's David Chadwick with today's Bible Minute.

Has someone hurt your heart? If so, Jesus gives us in Matthew 18:15 some specific instructions on how to handle that hurt. He says go directly and specifically to that person. Share your hurt and then try to see if there's a way to reconcile it.

If it happens, you have been able to hold on to a great friend and if that person doesn't admit to it, then take somebody else who knows and if that doesn't work, then take them to the elders or to the entire church for the purpose of this instruction is to make sure that you go to the person.

You don't go to anybody else and gossip and slander about that person. You go directly to that person and it ensures that graciousness and unity continue to indwell the Body of Christ called the Church.
