How to deal with relationships

In 1 Cor 5:1-5, Paul presents an interesting subject here.  This is called dealing with an immoral brother in the Lord.  Paul brings this out for us to think about because many are doing their own thing even though they know what God expects.  Paul says we are not even to eat with that person.  Have nothing to do with them is what Paul’s says.  Jesus Himself dealt with this question.  Jesus said that if we have something against another believer we are to talk with them first.  Then if they do not hear us, we are to take another with us.  If they still do not hear us, then we are to take the matter before the church.  If they still do not hear us or repent we are to expose them to the church.  It is at this point that we have nothing to do with them.  Church discipline is important but let us never get out of step with God’s plan.  Let us not run ahead and get hasty to discipline someome and also let us not be so slow and slack that no one is ever dealt with when it comes to sin.  We must also remember that everything we do is based in love.  One person said that Christians seem to be the only ones to shoot their wounded.  Today make every effort to heal that broken relationship or restore the fallen.  Your promises today are:  Psalm 107:20, Isaiah 41:10, Jer 15:21, Joel 2:20 and John 8:32.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  A man once told me that if he ever doubted the existence of God all he did was look around and that doubt disappeared.  When a person denies the existence of God, they are denying the one who gives them breath.  Gen 2:7, God man man and then breathes into him the breath of life and man became a living soul.
