The Daily Bible Verse

: TRUTH DELIVERED

If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent—not to put it too severely. The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him.

– 2 Corinthians 2:5-8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

When someone is exposed in their sin and is repentant, our response should be compassion and not of more judgment. When a person admits they have sinned against God and others the greatest thing that they need is affirmation, not condemnation. The church has a great opportunity to love the sinner, especially when the sinner is one of her own.
