Voices Together

2 Corinthians 7:11-13

For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

Therefore, although I wrote to you, I did not do it for the sake of him who had done the wrong, nor for the sake of him who suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear to you.

Therefore we have been comforted in your comfort. And we rejoiced exceedingly more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.

Very that Paul's concern for the saints of Corinth was not particularly for the perpetrator, ,although he was in error or for the victim even though he suffered but for the event's impact on the congregation and its witness.

Do we look at our own flocks with the same priories. I suspect not.
