Oh! To Be Candid…Yet Kind

Candid

Matthew 7:12
New Living Translation (NLT)

The Golden Rule

12 “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.


 

Candid and Kind

Let us be truthful
And lay it on the line
Telling each other
Just what’s on our mind

There’s really no reason
Why we should shy away
We think what we think
So we should say what we say

We’ll give and we’ll take
And hear the other’s thoughts
Then we’ll think it all over
And see what we’ve wrought

Maybe we’ll forge friendship
Or possibly we’ll fight
But it’s better than stewing
About who’s wrong or right

And perhaps in the end
If we don’t wear our feelings on our sleeves
We’ll realize that we each have a right
To believe what we believe

Father,

Help us to hold tight to Your truth but to never greet someone who doesn’t believe as we do with anger. Help us to do to others as we would like them to do to us. Help us to be patient and kind for once we were without knowledge of You also. And may we speak Your truth and see it change the hearts of men. Thank You, Lord!
