Is lay-counseling biblical?

Every Christian is called to counsel. Some think Christian counseling is a room where you send people with problems. It is not. Christian counseling is the art of coming alongside of someone to teach, convict, restore, and discipline in righteous living. Galatians 6:1 says, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual (mature), restore such an one in the spirit of meekness.” Colossians1:28 tells us that we as Christians are to “present every man perfect (complete) in Christ Jesus.” Christian counseling is a body thing. It is the body of Christ ministering to the body.
