Truth. We often withhold the truth in an attempt to protect someone’s feelings. Truth. We often tell the truth to someone knowing full well that it will hurt them but justify our actions by saying, “we did it out of love”. Truth in love. The truth must be shared but also must have a foundation in true love.
Lord, help me to have the confidence to share the truth and help me to have the maturity to share that truth only in love that is intended to help the other person and not to benefit myself.
