指出错 [Tell One’s Fault]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音18章15节:“倘若你的弟兄得罪你,你就去趁着只有他和你在一处的时候,指出他的错来。他若听你,你便得了你的弟兄;”

今日默想:你被人得罪事小,得罪你的弟兄不知错事大。为着让他知错,不再往错谬里直奔,好得回你的弟兄,所以须要指出他的错来。指出错误不是责备,不是控告,而是盼望使人归正。要当面指出错误,而不要背后诉说错误。凡不敢对弟兄当面说的话,就不要在他背后说。要设身处地,替对方着想,不到非不得已,不可让别人知道他得罪你的事。信徒作“对”的事,也要有“对”的态度和作法。态度和作法若是错了,即使是作“对”的事,也无法收到“对”的果效。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 18:15 :“Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother.”

Today’s Meditation: It is a small matter to get sinned against, but your brethren does not know how big the matter is. It is necessary to tell your brethren his fault by telling him so that he does not run greedily in the error. Pointing out one’s mistake is not reproaching but to make one back to the right path. We need to point out the mistake face to face instead of at the back. We should not talk someone at the back if we do not have the courage to talk to him face to face. We need to stand at each other’s ground and think for one another. We should avoid letting others to know a brethren have sinned against you as much as possible. We need to do the ‘right’ thing with the ‘right’ attitude and method. We cannot reap the ‘right’ effect if we possessed the wrong attitude and method even if we are doing the ‘right’ thing.
