I’m learning that telling others only what they want to hear is not loving. To build unrealistic hopes or defend irresponsible behavior in loved ones will only lead to pain and anger when the unvarnished truth…the unavoidable truth becomes apparent.
So many in my community are living a fantasy that those around them know cannot bring peace or satisfaction…only a hopeless future. Yet they persist in the lie while calling anyone daring to shine a light on the deranged darkness…”evil” or “unloving”. How upside-down our world has become.
I know You love me because often You’ve been willing to tell me things I didn’t want to hear.
I’m to Forgive…Obey…Tell the truth…Humble myself… it’s a pretty inexhaustible list…but all whispered for my best.
Make me a love “whisperer”.
