Speaking the Truth in Love

with Ron Deal | April 23, 2020

New friendships, new marriages, and new stepfamilies are all tempted to avoid saying the hard thing. The relationship feels fragile and you're not sure if it's strong enough to handle the truth. Scripture, in Ephesians 4 says we should put off falsehood and speak truth. We can even be angry, but do so without sin, managing the anger so that it doesn't corrupt the conversation. In your home instead of walking on egg shells, share your thoughts and feelings in a healthy, collaborative manner.
