The Meditation

Let us think of two types of persons. Here is a

person who tells you the truth and you resent it.

Here is another person who tells you the truth

and you appreciate it. What is the difference?

Could it be that one person has learned how to

speak the truth in love, and the other hasn’t?

Here are some ways to speak truth in love.

  1. Sometimes by being silent when you see another

is wrong and waiting for the right mood and

the right moment to share truth with them.

  1. Begin your statement with your own confession

and a sincere willingness to be told the truth

by the other person.

  1. Never correct another person when you are mad

at him or her, in the home, office, school, or

anywhere else.

  1. Watch the tones of your voice and let them

convey love.

  1. Convince others of your love and they may ask

you for the truth.

Jesus Christ is God’s truth spoken in love to
