Speaking the Truth

Fears, however justified, should never stymie constructive and necessary action. (Dale Stoffer, university professor and author)

Sometimes we may be tempted to refrain from saying or writing what we know to be true because of the expected audience or readership. It’s the fear of ridicule or rejection that makes us hesitant to speak out. It would be better to evaluate the importance of the truth we are withholding and not let personal fear prevent us from sharing what needs to be heard.

We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:14-15).
