When the love of Christ abides inside us, it can’t help but come out. Sometimes it escapes in the form of an admonishment meant to draw a wayward believer from a path of destruction. It might not feel like love to the one receiving the correction in that moment, but if we continue to lavish care on that person they will come to see our words come from a desire to restore rather than condemn. Keep your spirit in tune with God’s by communicating with HIm, praising Him, and listening to Him. When we are close to Him, we reflect Him, and His love comes through us even in the toughest moments.
