Bible Text: 2 Kings 4:38-44; John 7:24; Matthew 7:1-5 |


What is an honest mistake?

  • Not purposeful sin
  • Lack of Information
  • Lack of Ability

God shows mercy when He can, judgment when He must.

Honest mistakes do have consequences

Guilty vs. Responsibility

Christians could take advice from leaders in the Old Testament who did not participate in the guilt of Israel, preached against it, but took responsibility for it in their prayers.

The leader must be careful for how they deal with honest mistakes

  • Did not draw attention to the person

The offender should not be overly sensitive

  • Try to be patient with the leader if you are the offender

The leader is wrong if they handle it wrong, but the offender is wrong if they get bitter.
