Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan 5th, 2014

“Anyone who does not love (exhibit God’s love**) does not know God, because God is love.” – 1 John 4:8 ESV

 

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the TRUTH** , and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – Jesus, John 14:6

 

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the TRUTH**.” Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 13:6

 

**My emphasis

 

Talon’s point for today? Simple. We cannot truly love, and exhibit God’s love, unless we are prepared to exhibit the love of truth. Of course there is also this:

 

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,” Apostle Paul, Ephesians 4:15, (something Talon at times fails at and continues to need the gentle molding hand of the Master Potter to remember that we are charged to speak the truth we know in love.)

 

Sometimes that love must be bold and blunt and can appear as something unloving to a world that hates truth. Yet a willingness to speak the truth in boldness should also not be used as an excuse to disregard concepts of kindness.

    If truth is to be told on these pages then personally I have found the majority of people I encounter do not want to hear the truth, they may ask for it but are upset if you tell them.

      Agreed. And further truth be told I’ve found myself resisting the perfect truth of God from time to time until God patiently and lovingly brought me around to that truth. Sometimes that love was a still small voice. Other times His love was exhibited through His necessary chastening and what seemed at the time to be a harsh word.

      By the way, I absolutely love the background in your pic. Would love to visit Alaska.

Toss in your "two cents" if you care to. Fair warning, you might get change ;-)
