Be reconciled

When someone’s sin hurts your relationship with them, Christ says to go privately and speak to them (Matt 18:15). When you know YOU have sinned against another, Christ again says to go be reconciled (Matt 5:24). Either way, if we recognize there is a breach in our fellowship with a brother, it is OUR job to go humble ourselves and begin restoration. In a family or a parish, reconciliation matters more to the Lord than who is right.
