Ephesians 4:15 NASB "but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, that is, Christ,"I could tell right away that the conversation was going to be a rough one! No one likes to hear someone tell us that we are off track, or that our actions weren't the best but if we got friends, who really care about us, they will speak the Truth in love so we can grow up in all aspects like Christ! That's the verse for today, about speaking the Truth in love! As he called me over to the side, he began by telling me some of my good points and then, he began to say that my actions weren't appropriate for the situation at hand. He went on to share exactly what and how my actions had hurt others, he pulled no punches as he shared but with his arm around my shoulders, the Truth would set me free. Having a group of godly men around, to speak Truth into our lives can help us grow into mature christian men, something the world is lacking today! Remember, speak the Truth in love is better than the lie of a so called friend! peace, tom
