Session 8: Speak the Truth in Love

1. Bring hope through the gospel (John 4:7-26; 1 Cor 1:2-9)

2. Be quick to listen (James 1:19; Prov 18:13)

3. The tongue of the wise brings healing (Prov 12:18)
– Breathe grace (Eph 4:29)
– Speak only to build others up (Eph 4:29)
– Make charitable judgments (1 Cor 13:7)
– Talk in person whenever possible (Mat 18:15)
– Talk from beside, not from above (Mat 7:5)

4. Recognize your job (2 Tim 2:24-26; Rom 12:18)
– God’s job: To change people
– Your job: To speak the truth in love

Key principle:  Breathe grace rather than judgment.
