Thoughts of reflection: What do we do if we find someone doing one of these “works of the flesh?” Does Paul tell us to throw them out or publicly shame them first? No. They are to be restored into the community, and we are to do so in a spirit of gentleness. This is God’s nature. God desires all of us, not just the good ones.
How can we do this for others? How can we allow this to be done for ourselves?
