  • About the Guest

  • Today's culture says that it's loving to be tolerant. I have my truth, you have yours, and anyone who suggests otherwise is intolerant and unloving. Contrast that to God's word, Proverbs 27: "Better is open rebuke than hidden love." Real love, God says, is willing to correct a friend or a loved one-that is evidence of love, but saying nothing, is withholding love. It's weak and selfish. Don't' be intimidated about graciously and kindly sharing truth. Sometimes it's what love does.

Ron: Compassionately correcting a friend is an act of love. 

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Today’s culture says that it’s loving to be tolerant. I have my truth, you have yours, and anyone who suggests otherwise is intolerant and unloving. Contrast that to God’s word, Proverbs 27: “Better is open rebuke than hidden love.”

Real love, God says, is willing to correct a friend or a loved one—that is evidence of love, but saying nothing, is withholding love. In other words, “live and let live” is not love. It’s weak and selfish. Don’t be intimidated about graciously and kindly sharing truth. Sometimes it’s what love does. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
