But if someone has made anyone sad, that person hasn't hurt me but all of you to some degree (not to exaggerate).
The punishment handed out by the majority is enough for this person.
This is why you should try your best to forgive and to comfort this person now instead, so that this person isn't overwhelmed by too much sorrow.
So I encourage you to show your love for this person.
This is another reason why I wrote you. I wanted to test you and see if you are obedient in everything.
If you forgive anyone for anything, I do too. And whatever I've forgiven (if I've forgiven anything), I did it for you in the presence of Christ.
This is so that we won't be taken advantage of by Satan, because we are well aware of his schemes.
