    We were talking about this last night in small group as we discussed Proverbs 10, where it says

    Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life,but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.

    We talked about who we should approach with correction and rebuking when we see sin in their lives. We definitely should confront members of our small group, because one of the purposes of being in a small group is to love, support, and encourage one another. But it became questionable when we talked about confronting other members of the church. Do we know them well enough to know what sins they are struggling with? Do we know them well enough to know how they will react to the confrontation?
    It’s a tough topic.

      Absolutely, Lauren. I should have been more clear and said that in 99% of the cases, the prerequisite for confrontation is relationship. As Dave Ramsey says, “Its easier to thump someone on the head if your arm is around their shoulder.”
