I Desire Mercy, Not Sacrifice

Is your love for truth more about proving yourself right?

Or do you desire truth so that you can help others find restoration?

——————————————————————————————————————–

“I see evangelical Christians all the time who appear to value “speaking truth” and “being right” significantly more than they value lifting a finger to help broken, hurting, wandering people. I think that’s a good clue we’ve lost the truth about the heart of Jesus!”

——————————————————————————————————————–

1. I will never back down from speaking out what I believe to be truth.

2. I will always accept correction if it turns out that I have erred.

3. I will never dispense truth in isolation, then turn away, forgetting that the focus is not empty and harsh correction but repentance and restoration.

Help me to be kind God.
