Paul gives us three people groups in 1 Thessalonians 5:14 and how to respond to them. This podcast talks about those people groups: (1) Idle: the behavioral sinner, (2) Fainthearted: the small-souled person, and (3) Weak: a person with physical limitations, and the interplay our responses to them.
“And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:14
