The Word For Today.[br][br]Tuesday, 15 October 2019.[br][br]Make It A Personal Growth Experience.[br][br]‘Speaking the truth in love, we will grow.’ Ephesians 4:15 NIV.[br][br]Before you confront someone over an issue, stop and examine your motives. Is your goal to help or humiliate them? Jesus was in the business of lifting and restoring people, and you should be in that business too. Ask yourself, would you approach things differently if you weren’t so personally involved? Are you confronting this person to make yourself look better? Cutting someone else down in order to lift yourself up is the lowest form of ego gratification.[br][br]Poet Kahlil Gibran said, ‘To belittle, you have to be little.’ Don’t do it! It’s a sign of insecurity. Remember Nehemiah’s response to those who tried to discourage him from rebuilding Jerusalem’s walls? ‘I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?’ (Nehemiah 6:3 KJV) Don’t allow your critics to break your stride. Don’t give more credence to the sentiments of a critic than you would to the encouragement of a friend. Before you put somebody else’s life under the microscope, stop and examine your own. Are you grappling with the same issue, or one just as bad? Have you succeeded where you’re accusing somebody else of failing? In other words, have you earned the right to be heard?[br][br]Paul writes, ‘Speaking the truth in love we will grow… in every respect.’ Could it be that the situation you’re dealing with right now is an opportunity to measure your own maturity and make it a spiritual growth experience?[br][br]SoulFood: 2 Pet 1–3, John 4:27–38, Ps 87, Pro 24:1–4.
