If you are giving instruction in some piece of work, if you are employed at some occupation with others, never turn one who is awkward into ridicule. If he be so from want of intelligence, your ridicule is very uncharitable; if from want of education, it is exceedingly unjust.
Correct in a kind manner
Correct, in a kind manner, his awkwardness, show him how to do his work, and God, seeing you and pleased with your patience, will send one of his angels to aid you when you have something difficult to accomplish.
