These days you do not have to search long to find examples of people self-righteously correcting the perceived sins of others loudly, proudly, and openly for all to see. In the political world, this is often referred to as “virtue signaling” and both sides are guilty of it almost every day. Paul confronted this sort of prideful behavior in his letter to the Galatians. He said, “Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.” The sprit of gentleness Paul speaks of does not seek to belittle or condemn others – it seeks to correct for the purpose of rebuilding. Confrontation can either be prideful or gentle, and the Bible clearly spells out which choice Christians should be choosing. Today, if you are caught in a confrontation, speak with a spirit of gentleness rather than pride.

“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.” – Galatians 6:1 ESV
