What is Courageous

IMG_0125.JPG

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭15‬ NIV)

I think one of the most courageous thing is to speak the truth in love.

It is easier to say the thing that others expect you to say.

To say the thing that will make you look good or get you off the hook.

To say the thing that will not cause conflict.

Is is the easiest not say anything at all.

It is courageous to speak the truth.

To be vulnerable.

To be real.

And to say it in love (not in insecurity, not in hurt, not in defensiveness but in love).

Change happens and life changes when you speak the truth in love.

Be courageous.

    Ya know, I could easily get fired from my job for bringing up God or Christianity, but I do it because I very much believe in that Love. I find myself to be at peace with the thought of being fired for letting others know about God. I don’t hope to be fired, but I really hope that I can never lose courage to talk about God.

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment!
