This morning I heard a wonderful message on the radio from The "Get Up" Morning Show with Erica Campbell (from the group Mary Mary). She said that everyone should speak their truth with and in LOVE.
Often times, the delivery of our message may be taken out of context and could lead to an uncomfortable or complicated situation. So, we shy away from being truthful with others afraid of offending or hurting someone. But Ephesians 4:15 (NLT) says, "Instead , we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church." We must remember that God allows us the opportunity to speak our TRUTH in LOVE. In preparing to speak your truth to someone you care about, remember these certain principles - Be patient, kind, compassionate and ALWAYS show LOVE!
