Speaking Truth

Never worry about who will be offended if you speak the truth. Worry about who will be misled, deceived and destroyed if you don’t. (Anthony Akubue, university professor)

Whether it’s the fear of embarrassment or a dislike for confrontation, we sometimes fail to speak out in defense of what we believe is right and true. Intimidation may cause us to miss an opportunity for teaching and correction. Akubue’s comment is an encouragement for us to always speak out in the defense of truth and to encourage others to consider it carefully.

[True worshipers] lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. (Psalm 15:1-2)
We will speak the truth in love. (Ephesians 4:15)
