How does fresh air relate to the spring cleaning of your soul?
Air out differences with those who are important to you. Mathew 18:15-17amp tells us exactly how to do that.
|“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone.||STEP ONE: tell the person who has offended you, not everyone or anyone else.|
|If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.||Check your motives.What are you trying to win? The argument or your brother?|
|But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.||STEP TWO: Don’t bring people to agree with you. Do bring someone you both trust and respect.|
|If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church.||STEP THREE: Church leaders may be able to help clear the air between you.|
|And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.||STEP FOUR: How do you treat gentiles and tax collectors-we do not trust or have intimate fellowship but we never stop loving.|
Do NOT waste your time airing out differences with people who are not important to you.
