"Honesty is the best policy."
You have probably heard this quote a million times... have you ever really thought about it?
Up to now I don't think I have really.
Telling the truth and being honest is SO hard at times. Trust me... I know.
Ephesians 4:15 says, " But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ."
When you tell the truth tell it in love... example:
You finish your dance, you mess up several times, you ask your friends how you did:
Friend 1 : " You were awful! You messed up so many times. You are not good at dancing."
Friend 2 : " You did mess up, but you were brave enough to do the dance. And you keep going, keep practicing... then you can get better."
Both remarks were true. The first was true, but it pulled you down. The second was true, and it encouraged you. Speak in love.
Speak the truth in love.
