Speaking the Truth in Love

I have had several difficult encounters in the last few months, which really made me search myself.

Soul searching is never easy, especially if you have to admit to yourself that you were the one in the wrong.

On two occasions, I swallowed my pride and asked a dear friend and mentor, who was an eyewitness to these encounters, “was I in the wrong?  Please tell me the truth so that I can change it.”

I would not have asked this of just anyone, but this was a dear friend who I knew would speak the truth to me in an honest and loving way.

We all need one or two close friends that we can be honest with and speak the truth in a loving manner to.

Solomon wrote “The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.”   {Proverbs 27:9}

Do you have a friend you can speak the truth in love to?  Do you speak the truth in love to others?
