You don’t embrace a drowning person

A rescue swimmer doesn’t embrace a drowning person. If you do that, the victim is likely to pull you under with him. Instead, a rescue swimmer tries to approach the drowning person from behind and gently propel him toward shore.

There are lessons for believers in there: about disciplemaking, about our relationships with broken people, and about the danger of embracing people who are drowning in a wicked culture.
