When you make someone feel ashamed of their actions, you make them more cautious in coming to you for help, advise, or guidance.
But when you guide someone through their actions, they will be more honest about their mistakes and more open to asking for help.
When you listen instead of lecture, they will be more willing to open up.
When you are understanding instead of judgmental, they may be more willing to listen to what you have to say.
Think of how Jesus would act, that too is how you should act. Whether it pertains to your children, spouse, sibling, friend, or any person in general, act the way our savior would. I have to remind myself of this from time and time again, so I thought I would share to remind you as well.
