Do you seek correction? by John Calvin

“The first foundation of discipline is to provide a place for private admonition; that is, if anyone does not perform his duty willingly, or behaves insolently, or does not live honorably, or has committed any act deserving blame—he should allow himself to be admonished; and when the situation demands it, every man should endeavor to admonish his brother.”

–John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book 4, Chapter XII, Section 2, Page 1230.
(HT: Pastor Mike Walters)
