    Verse 38: The measure that we give out will be returned to us. We want to make sure that we are generous.
  • A disciple
    minister; I think most of us never want to hurt someone's feelings or make them feel guilty and ashamed for their sins; but we have a commandment from God to speak His word faithfully; and rebuking sin is an integral part of letting Jesus' light shine in us. In John 14-16 Jesus tells us that it is the Spirit's work in us and through us to convict the world of sin. This along with real compassion!
  • Minister
    do not show them their sins ,but show them the light in you ,Jesus said let your light so shine that they would see your good works and glorfy your father which is in heaven. In other words you do what Jesus said according to his words and give them Love .Love covers a multitude of sin.
