Oh, No!

Read Galatians 6:1-2 NIV

Disappointed with life, a fellow decided to drink his troubles away. Stumbling out of a bar, he came face to face with his minister.

“Pastor,” he cried, “I hate for you to see me like this!”

“But God sees you,” replied the man of God.

“Yeah,” admitted the fellow, “but He keeps it to Himself.”

When someone is overcome by sin, don’t prey on him. Pray for him. It’s not condemnation he needs, but compassion and a cure.

St. Paul said, “If someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens.”

Prayer: Father, expand our hearts and our minds with the deepest concern for the blessedness of others. Help us to act in love and to speak with kindness this day. Constrain us to pray for others: through Christ. Amen.
