Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.
Reflect and Respond:
Being passionate is good thing, but anger - not so much- because anger damages your testimony for Christ. So take a moment to consider how you might speak the truth in love to others. According to Ephesians 4: 15-16, what will this accomplish? May you be blessed as you share the truth and love of Christ!
Father, thank you for bringing me into your family. Help me to speak the truth in love, not anger so that nothing stands in the way of me becoming more like Christ. Amen
