While it is often threatening to speak bold truth to people, Scripture implores us to do so. The prophet Zechariah says these words to us: “These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace” (Zechariah 8:16). Notice the end product of speaking truth: it makes for peace. While we know that deception creates chaos in any relationship, truth spoken at the right time and in the right way leads to peace. Are you a truth teller? Where in your life do you need to be speak more truth?
