When love is felt, the message is heard. (Jim Vaus, converted gangster)
Bad news and corrections are very difficult to deliver. But even difficult words, spoken in love, can be received well and appreciated., even life-changing. Theodore Roosevelt is quoted as saying, “Nobody cares what you know until they know that you care.” We all need to learn how to say hard things with an attitude of concern, humility, and love.
Speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15).
