“If a brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault just between the two of you. If he listens, you have won your brother back. But if he does not listen, take one or two others with you so that every word may be verified by two or three witnesses. If he ignores these witnesses, tell it to the church. If he also ignores the church, then treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.” (Matt 18:15)
The obvious question here – which I never once thought about until recently is, “How did Jesus treat pagans and tax collectors?” Hmm….
Today I return to Maryland for two days before flying to Hungary on Friday to teach in the School of Worship at YWAM Budapest.
The fellowship of believers here in Florence is becoming more beautiful by the day. I seriously hate to leave such rich conversations and affectionate friendships.
