WAY 2 Kelly LePenske

Way #2:  Speak the Truth with Love

 

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.

 
a  Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. (Ephesians 4: 29)
 
b  Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. (Ephesians 4: 31)
 
c  Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church (Ephesians 4: 15)
