“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.”
Discipline is always a redemptive process never punitive. Discipline is meant to restore not punish someone for their actions.
Remember their actions themselves could be punishment to them – what the person needs is restoration & redemption.
Instruction is also a part of redemption – correction is part of restoration.
Would love to hear your comments.
