Lies are dangerous. But the most dangerous of all are the ones you tell yourself.
It takes courage to tell yourself the truth about yourself. It takes greater courage to tell the truth about yourself to a trusted friend in order to seek help to change those things that need changing. Sometimes, we also need someone else to watch our back to make sure we keep the good and healthy parts what makes you “you” going and growing.
When you read Scripture and seek God through prayer and when you experience the kind of biblical fellowship that involves a brother or sister speaking the truth to you in love… will you listen, or will you defend yourself even if it means believing a lie about yourself.
Godliness and humility lead us to being honest about who we really are. When we talk about “Speaking the truth in love” we usually think about speaking the truth to someone else in love. But make sure you’re speaking the truth to yourself in love too.
