I ask you does it feel good to receive correction? It says in Hebrews 12:11 (ESV) For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
At the moment of correction, if it is the first time does it still produce the same thing? I would say that there needs to be a clear definition of what true love is before the correction is implemented. I share this with you, to pray for wisdom, godly wisdom in dealing with someone has not been corrected for a very long time. It makes me ponder of the times in the gospels where Jesus confronted the pharisees on how they were living calling them white washed tombs. What would have been like for one of those men to repent and say, "I am tomb full of dead bones trying to convince everyone around me that I have it altogether." No discipline seems pleasant in the moment but painful later yielding fruit of righteousness.
