Having The Guts To Tell The Truth

telling the truth in love

In his book ‘Live Love Lead’ pastor Brian Houston writes:

“When you’re going through a rough patch, you want friends, colleagues, mentors, or pastors who have the guts to tell you the truth and to remind you of God’s truth
– not people who are simply trying to please you”

Amen to having such kingdom friends, and to being one. Micaiah was such a person:

“Meanwhile, the messenger who went to get Micaiah said to him,  “Look, all the prophets are promising victory for the king.  Be sure that you agree with them and promise success.”  But Micaiah replied, “As surely as the LORD lives,  I will say only what my God says.”  

2 Chronicles 18:12-13 NLT
