Dealing with weaknesses

“Accept him whose faith is weak.” (Rom. 14:2)

“Love covers a multitude of sins." (1 Peter 4:8)

Rather than dividing the Body between the strong and the weak, we often talk about encouraging each other’s strengths and covering each other’s weaknesses.

What does this mean in a practical sense?

I think teaching tends to give more attention to the development of gifts, emphasizing the “building up.”

But what are examples of weak areas in a brother that we can protect, and how so? If we have weak areas in our own lives, how can we ask for help?
