Jesus walked among us; teaching and investing in others. We need to be like Him and be involved in our communities and those around us. Others will want to hear the “Truth” we have when they see and experience grace from us. No one will listen to you if all you do is rant the Truth at them. They need to feel and see God’s love in our lives in order to open their own hearts to the “Truth.” This is not something that is done overnight, but as the relationship is cultivated, the opportunities to share the “Truth” will come.
Questions for further thought:
1. What was your reaction when someone ranted the truth at you?
2. To whom can you show grace and truth today? Pray for God to show who that might be.
Challenge: For the individual identified above, take a step to build trust or show grace to them.
