Yes I know, another post so soon but it's just been a good day so I'd like to share it with yall before I forget.
So the service this morning was phenomenal! Pastor Michael is doing a series right now called "Get Smart" and today his topic was on the tongue or what you say. This sermon really spoke to me so there's the link if you have time to listen to it. I guess what really stuck out to me was this diagram he showed that had 3 parts, the blue part was called "truth," the middle section was green, and the last section which was yellow was called "love." So he asked, where are you on this diagram, are you in the "love" section where you're always the encourager even at the expense of the truth, or are you in the "truth" section where you always tell the truth but not in a loving way, you may be too brutal at times.
So obviously the green section is where you should be and speaking the truth in love but I know personally, I fall in the "love" section where I'm always trying to please people and never say anything to upset anyone and being here I know it is something I have to work on especially if I have issues with people either on my staff or volunteers.
So just be praying for me that God helps me to get out of my comfy yellow section and venture into the green one!
Thanks for reading and again let me know what's going on with yall!

(The pastor explained that this verse shows that your real friends will tell you how it is, they'll tell you what you need to hear, even if it's not what you want to hear and those can be trusted.)
