Grace-Filled Correction Require Patience and Relationship — A Quote by John Burke in “No Perfect People Allowed”

“One of the most challenging tasks of leading a culture of acceptance is determining how to provide acceptance yet also confront unloving or destructive behaviors. Part of the solution is taking a ‘process’ view of growth. All people are in process, and if they are willing, God is going to be gently cleaning the mud off his Rembrandt until their final day. So we must be patient like God. Clearly, when you have a relationship established and the other person knows you are for them, not against them, it’s easier for them to hear you speak truth in love.”

— John Burke, “No Perfect People Allowed”, Kindle position 1857
