Sometimes the truth hurts

Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. Prov. 27:6

Every one of us needs at least one friend who has permission to get up in our business. There are plenty of people who will tell us we’re okay when we’re really not. A real friend is someone who won’t gossip or judge but who cares enough about us to call us out when we’re messing up.

Lord, thank you for the friends who speak truth into my life even when it hurts.
