Truthful leadership

I was praying and meditating in my car at lunch time last Wednesday and looked up. In the clouds I saw a beautiful white borse. This is very similar to the pic I keep at my desk to remind me that God sees the finished product not the mess in the making! He knows that “in Christ” we are perfect but while we are hindered by our earthly natures there will be moments when we don’t always reflect Him. It is a blessing to have people who are on “our team” who are truthful with us. It may not be easy but to speak the truth in love is the best way to influence each other for growth. Deception and lies only serve those who are on the enemy’s side. Lord, give us grace to discern truth from lies, what is self- seeking from what is God-honoring. – Teresa #whenthetruthurts #itisnotalwaysaboutyou #teamformingispainful

Proverbs 26:18-19 English Standard Version (ESV)

18

Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death

19

is the man who deceives his neighbor

and says, “I am only joking!”
