Today:

How do I best present the Truth from God in a tone that is loving?

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 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 4:14-15 (NIV 2011)
