A spiritual approach is the only way to resolve a spiritual problem. The resolution of this issue must come from the presence of God. If the Lord uses a believer’s help in this situation, the believer will obtain the needed help in God’s presence (Hebrews 4:16). Prayer is our first recourse. Pray for the brother as his loving helper; don’t pray "against" him. Cultivate a positive, sincere, godly relationship with him. Appreciate whatever wholesome motivation he has. Discourage criticism; it will not help. By patiently waiting on the Lord, learn from Him what will be the most effective means to help the brother and communicate God’s concern to him. God’s means of helping the brother will not destroy or belittle him, but will produce through the correction a better man than he was before.
