Speaking the Truth in Love
When a relationship feels fragile, it’s tempting to stop speaking the truth.
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 eggshells, share your thoughts and feelings in a healthy, collaborative manner.
