Speak the Truth in Love

Blossom Alley

A word about honesty. The Scripture exhorts us to speak the truth in love. Speak the truth in love. Which means, don’t speak the truth in anger or resentment or with the desire to wound. We need to be careful to check our motives underneath our speaking the truth. We want to be aware of the “why” behind the desire to share something. We want to know that we are speaking the truth with the desire to love, to bless. A dear friend told me that when we don’t speak the truth in love, it is no longer truth.
