From Both Sides

today's reading.
Matthew 18:15-20    "If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother...
Matthew 18:15-20

think about it.
Outline the steps Jesus gives for handling someone's sin and failure (Matthew 18:15-17)? How would you use these if you're the one at fault? In Luke 19:8-10, how does Zacchaeus handle his sinful track record? What steps of restoration do you need to take today?

the blog.
We've been looking at and considering our own temptation and sin for the last week or so. But with Matthew 18:15-20, we take a look at someone sinning against us. That's always difficult to deal with but even more so when the offender is a brother or sister in Christ.

So what did you learn from Matthew 18:15-20 about dealing with a fellow believer who has sinned against you? If we flip the situation to where we are the offending party, now what do we learn from this passage? Tami W.
