In this episode of You’re Not Crazy, Sam Allberry and Ray Ortlund discuss 2 Timothy 2:14–26. They consider the importance of avoiding a quarrelsome spirit in Christian leadership and the need for kindness, patience, and gentleness in dealing with others. Their conversation highlights how the apostle Paul’s approach to correction is to first connect with others, not shame or reject them, and to do so in a way that makes it easy for them to repent and follow Jesus.
