Tell him his fault . . . and him alone

I had an experience this week that made me reflect on something Jesus said shortly after his transfiguration.

“Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.” —Matt. 18:15

I wonder what the world would be like if every time someone has a problem with another person, s/he approached that person and the two sat down to discuss it together.

  1. We might have to forgo the pleasure of future posts similar to “I don’t think the “body is a temple” scripture is about tattoos” and “Sacrament does not renew the baptismal covenant”.
