II Corinthians 13:10

This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority – the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down.

No matter what authority we are given, or the circumstances where we will use that authority, it is always for building the other person up in Christ.
