We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

Lord, you are searching for honesty (Jeremiah 5:3; NLT).

An honest answer is like a kiss of friendship (Proverbs 24:26; NLT).

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12.9; NLT).

Do not judge others, and you will not be judged (Matthew 7:1; NLT).


There’s just one way
For us to know each other, Lord –

That way is made of honesty,
And love.

But our confidence to speak
Depends on trusting

That we won’t be judged,
And will be understood.
