Thought for the day June 3, 2013

I just experienced a moment with my kids arguing.  I tried to single one out to discuss the issue and correct it, but the other consistently yelled at the other telling them how wrong they were. this condemning was so loud that it was not easy to hear my voice and correction.  We dealt with the whole thing. 
I reflect now on my brothers and sisters in Christ.  I thought, "I bet Heavenly Father deals with this too."  Sometimes if I see an issue with a "brother or sister," I can bring it to their attention, but the correction is not necessarily mine to handle.  I need to make sure my rebuke isn't so hefty that they are distracted from the Voice of correction they really need to hear.  I can intercede on their behalf to Father, even tattle to Him, but if I am obedient I will likely do more praying for them than yelling at them.
