My friend once reminded me of the saying we've all heard before, "The Truth Hurts." But this time he followed it up with something that really hit me hard, "But God's truth is life & light."
Often I say some quick, snide remark to a friend & when conviction arises I try to brush it off with, "well the truth hurts." But now that Ive been told the REAL truth....its gotten me thinking.
God's truth is healing, is light, its encouraging & uplifting, it helps us out! The only "truth" I should be dishing out to those around me is the TRUTH! And thats God's truth.
Lord, change my heart. Help me with my sarcasm & my tone. Heal my heart! May I be led by your Holy Spirit, & with that, led by YOUR truth so that I may pour that same truth out on others. Redeem the hurtful words I've said, and fill me with Your love.
