Wisdom 1:1-7; Psalm 139; Luke 17:1-6

Scandal in the community

What should we do when we are faced with scandal in our Church community? It is a very pertinent question. Painful to admit, yet we must: members of our Church, in whom we placed great trust, have betrayed that trust. What should we do? As citizens, we must obey the laws of our country; as Christians, we must both rebuke and forgive, according to circumstances. To be both just and merciful we need the wisdom of a deep, penetrating faith. Let us pray for this wisdom so that we can be both just and merciful.
