Ephesians 4:14-15 (NIV)
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.
- Paul says to “speak the truth in love.” What other motivations can you have for “speaking the truth?”
- Why is speaking the truth in “anger” “hate” or “jealousy” a bad idea?
- How can “speaking the truth” harm relationships if it is spoken in anger?
- Why is “love” an important motivation to have when “speaking the truth?”
- How does it help the relationship?
- How did Jesus “speak the truth in love?”
- When we consistently do things in love, how does that help the people in our congregation DISCOVER JOY?
