“Speak the Truth with Love – Way 2”

WAY #2: SPEAK THE TRUTH WITH LOVE
 
.Speak honestly and directly in a way that clearly reflects love and support for one another. Be courageous enough to say what needs to be said, even when it’s difficult. Address issues directly with those who are involved or affected; speak to, not about, others. (Ephesians 4: 15)
 
The best speech is direct speech. Follow straight lines with one an-other. This Way sets us on the Point A to Point B road to others. No detours to talk about the one you need to address. No turning the other way to avoidthe tough conversations. We’re learning at FPCM to be direct and straight with each other. You know why we are? It’s easier, that’s why. I’ve found that when I put off what needs to be said that I end up carrying a bur-den that I don’t need to shoulder. The longer I carry it the heavier it becomes. By speaking the truth with love I’m really living love; and living love is lighter by far. Please think: what do I need to say? Say it straight with love.
