My Sister's Keeper by Angeline Lawrence
Many of us have fallen short in some area of our life as Christians. Christ was adamant that we not judge others. Matthew 7:1 states, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” (NIV) Rather, we should restore our sisters in the faith who have made mistakes, than ostracize them. Believers in the New Testament church were taught to help those that were weaker in the faith than they were.
Of course we must discern the situation and use wisdom. While some individuals are remorseful and want to rebuild their faith, there are others that are the opposite. Today, I will talk about ways to help individuals that have failed in their walk of faith, but need help to overcome. (Galatians 6:1)
As members of the Kingdom of God who are strong, it is our duty to help restore them with love and gentleness. Romans 15:1 states, “We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.” (NIV)
