At Olive we strive to do ministry to the least of these. Part of that is a recovery ministry to addicts of various backgrounds. We have many wonderful stories of victory. In October we will celebrate with several of the ladies at the Charis House as they graduate.
There are times when some people who have walked with Jesus and served others fail. This has happened among us this week. One of our recovery leaders turned back into sin. What do we do?
We grieve. We weep. Paul says that when it happens, ”you who are spiritual should restore such a person with a gentle spirit, watching out for yourselves so you won’t be tempted also.” (Galatians 6:1).
How do we do that?
2. Be humble
3. Stand for truth
5. Carry one another’s burden
Ministry is harder some days than others. Today is a tough one for me.
