TWITTER QUOTE

I came across a tweet from Bishop T D Jakes which stood out among the plethora of words talking to me from my computer. I posted it on Facebook and have received several responses to it with people wanting to talk about it or comment on it.

“Those who really love you will speak the truth to you at the risk of falling out with you. Loving truth from a friend is better than gold.”

This is a great quote and increasingly vital for all of us if we want to truly make our lives count and not be sidetracked or deceived by our own ‘self-blindness’ along the way. True friends who will lovingly but obstinately speak the key things we really need to hear are very rare. If you have one – hang on to them and don’t get offended when they say something you don’t like! I speak to myself here also!! Ha ha.

May we all find friendships this year that have this priceless quality about them. I pray in GVC as we develop more ‘church as family’ this aspect – truly loving and lovingly true – will develop more. Have a blessed 2013.
