"Do You Know the Profile of a Godly Leader?" Part 6
In this text, Paul describes negatively what his ministry was NOT characterized by. He said that his ministry:

Next week we'll examine the positive counterpart to this as we'll look at Paul's humble, gentle, life-giving attitude of serving the people of God.

"Divide the Land! 5 Lessons to Live Triumphantly!"
So your child has sinned and you've taken them to the room for discipline. So what do you do then? What, practically, does discipline look like?
Gather the facts - "what happened?"
Reach the heart -- "how did you respond?" Why?
Expose the sin -- Specify the sin (heart of selfishness, control, anger, etc.)
Prove it biblically --- ideally, open a Bible and show them the Scriptures.
Give the discipline -- use the rod.
Express tender love -- hold them, hug them, verbally tell them: "I love you"
Give the gospel -- do you know why I did this? You've sinned. God is holy. You're a sinner...
Pray with them -- Pray for them and move on tenderly, lovingly, caringly.
