Joel 2:13-14 (NIV)

13Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.

14Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing- grain offerings and drink offerings for the Lord your God.


James 5:19-20 (NIV)

19My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back,

20remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
