Scripture says, “Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you. Rebuke a wise man and he will love you.” The wise man is one who has seen the love of God, the one who understands that they have faults and wants to overcome them. Identifying people’s shortcomings is something we need to be invited into if we want them to hear. Correction only works if it’s backed up by love.
