Wednesday's Word

I do love Amy Deanne's blog... it's such an encouragement to me. So I keep stealing -- I mean plagiarizing -- I mean joining in for her great ideas. And this post is of course not based on my idea at all, or even Amy's, but God's:

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.”- Ephesians 4:15

I love this because it speaks so directly to what I've been walking through lately. It is hard to say the truth sometimes, when avoiding conflict or disagreement is my main life's goal! But when we speak the truth in love, we are walking in Jesus' shoes. Surely many, many people didn't like the truth he spoke, and yet that soft answer does turn away wrath.

I hope you have a blessed day!
