Galatians 4:16 “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
This is a very good question that must be asked among American Culture. We live in a world that despises the truth. People today hate to hear the truth, because many times, the truth can be painful. We must remember that those that are true friends are the ones that speak the truth, even when they know we don’t want to hear it. The generation we see growing up before our eyes are falling into a snare of lies. They would rather attach themselves to a lie than accept the truth. It does not seem logical that the truth would cause us to create enemies, however; it is a reality. We must remember that the truth was designed to help us, not hurt us. God says the truth will make us free. It is essential that we make sure we don’t get angry when we hear someone speak the truth to us out of a heart of love. If you get mad at the truth, then ask yourself whether you would rather appreciate the truth, or enjoy someone telling you a lie.
Today’s Challenge: Pay attention the truth today. Remember when your boss, parent, or pastor speaks to you in truth that it was not meant to hurt you, but rather help you.
