We need truth. We do not need watered down truth, half-truth, or partial truth. We need the real thing. But we also need it presented in love. Truth presented without love can be a weapon of destruction instead of a tool to set us free. Love does not necessarily mean softness. Kindness and softness are not always the same things. Sometimes, the kindest thing I can do is be tough on someone. But it still must be done in love and for love.
