Look at both pics to read the entire message. I found this worthwhile to share because we are all faced with this, manifested in different forms, daily.
I'm going to explain what this means to me using a practical and health-related example:
You have an overweight friend, border-line obese. He/she tells you, "I am A-okay with how I look and I don't need to exercise because I am happy with who I am right now". How do you, or should you, respond? Do you agree with her, as the politically correct world would tell you to do, but isn't that love without truth? Or do you disagree by disparaging him/her, or throwing out the facts of obesities' harmful effects? Isn't that truth without love? JESUS tells us to give the truth in love:). Tell that person in the correct, respectful, considerate and loving way that you disagree and here's why, but I want to pray for you, encourage you, motivate, support and walk alongside you in this journey to better yourself and become healthier.
Please comment your opinions. I love discussion and I appreciate and respect that people may disagree with me!
