Grace, Correction and Love
“But, speaking the truth in love.....” (Ephesians 4 v 15)
While this maybe the manner, it should also be the motivation. Jesus came full of Grace and Truth. Grace first before the Truth. It is not just the manner, but also the motivation. The reason why we give the feedback or correction is because we love the person. We desire for that person not to remain the same, but to continue to grow and mature in their faith and life. The next time someone gives you correction, receive it in love.
“Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid” (Proverbs 12 v 1)
