Scripture:   Matthew (NIV) 18:15 If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you.  If they listen to you, you have won them over. 

16  But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

17  If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church, and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or tax collector. 

Observation:     These guidelines have great benefit.  First:  They are relational.  There is high value on the relationship.  Second:  They allow for misjudgment and correction.  One may find out that things are not as they appear.  Third:  There is a strong emphasis on restoration and working to restore the fallen.  Fourth:  They allow for sin to be dealt with without hanging out the dirty laundry for all to see.  Fifth:  They show that the church is too important than to allow sin to continue.   Sixth:  They show the Father’s love flowing through people.  The guilty person is important to the one doing the confronting and there is a desire to help and not cause further hurt.  

Application:    I should not be surprised that God gave specific standards for dealing with sin.  Sin harms the individual, the church, and the Savior.  There is great wisdom in following the scriptures.   

Prayer:   Lord,  Thank you for caring enough to provide for correction and restoration.  How you love us, and how you love your church!  Amen
