Avoid Hasty Conclusions

Strong words of counsel about our counsel from Pastor Paul Tautges:

“If, in our attempt to be peacemakers, we reach conclusions and make judgments without taking time to practice biblical love, by seeking out and listening to both parties involved, then we are not wise counselors at all, but very foolish. Instead of helping the people we claim to care about we do more damage by becoming part of the problem rather than the solution; instead of serving God as a so-called peacemaker, we serve the flesh and do the devil’s work.”
