Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool. – Prov 10:18

Do you have something to say? Don’t hide it! Speak directly with that person. Go straight to the source of the disagreement, and compassionately speak your mind:

“Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother.” – Matt 18:15

Hiding is just as bad as lying, and speaking behind someone’s back is even worse. Go straight to that person and tell them what you have to say!

Prayer:

Father, give me the courage to speak my mind. Help me never to hide the words when I have something to say! Give me boldness to say what needs to be said in a way that births compassion, in Jesus’ name!
