These verses give some insight into biblical corrrection (Correction means to set straight again). Sometimes correction comes from anger or duty. These are the wrong ways to go about correction. Correction should always be done out of whole-hearted steadfast love. Titus showed up, comforting Paul and he had great news. He received the good news that his tearful letter was well received. It temporarily grieved the Corinthians but the fruit of thhe sorrow, repentance, was good. Godly grief produces repentance. Worldy grief produces death. Goldy grief produces v. 13.
Good hope of rrelationships (13-16)-
1) BEFORE CORRECTION PEOPLE SHOULD BE AWARE OF OUR AFFECTION FOR THEM. Only correct out of a heart of genuine affection.
2) Pauls great boldness toward correction is not a reckless bull in a China shop boldness but is encouraged and tempered by grace.
3) Correction is never easy but is necessary to set peoples path straight. It is put on by genuine love.
4) We need to see repentance as a gift from God, not a necessary evil. It keeps us on the path of salvation.
5) To settle for worldy grief is to be a party to a persons death. We need to be eager to forgive and should not judge people's confessions.
6) Troubles are not the main focus but rather that God is at work in those individual's lives. THIS IS ALWAYS OUR HOPE IN CORRECTION.
