It takes courage to forgive when everyone else is throwing stones. Do it anyway.

It takes courage to correct when everyone else is justifying a friend’s wrongdoing. Do it anyway.

It takes courage to embrace the outsider when everyone else is ambivalent. Do it anyway.

It takes courage to die for someone else when everyone else is living for themselves. Do it anyway.

Jesus did.

Guiding your small group to do what’s relationally correct no matter the cost is essential for their spiritual growth. Model these things, remind them of these things, praise them when they do these things, and you’ll create an astoundingly healthy relational environment.
