TWO CONFRONTATIONAL EXTREMES
- SOME ARE UNWILLING TO CONFRONT. Daniel 4:7 – some translations say could not, others say would not.
- SOME CONFRONT UNLOVINGLY.
22 It is you, O king, who have grown and become strong. Your greatness has grown and reaches to heaven, and your dominion to the ends of the earth.. 25 that you shall be driven from among men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. You shall be made to eat grass like an ox, and you shall be wet with the dew of heaven, and seven periods of time (Seven Years) shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will. 26 And as it was commanded to leave the stump of the roots of the tree, your kingdom shall be confirmed for you from the time that you know that Heaven rules.
Daniel 4:22, 25-26 (ESV)
27 Therefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to you: break off your sins by practicing righteousness, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the oppressed, that there may perhaps be a lengthening of your prosperity.”
Daniel 4:27 (ESV)
Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.
Galatians 6:1 (ESV)
- GOD, HELP ME CONFRONT WITH THE GOAL OF RESTORATION.
… restore him in a spirit of gentleness.
- GOD, HELP ME CONFRONT WITH CAUTION.
Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.
