Do The Right Thing

My friend and I had identical situations arise in our lives this week--

She did the right thing;
I didn't do anything...

She spoke words of truth;
I kept silent...

Her words attempted to correct, make right, teach, plant a seed;
my silence gave a false sense of approval...

Her attitude was one of loving another person enough to speak words that were hard to say;
my attitude was one of not wanting to make waves or upset someone...

Her actions mirrored Titus 2:3;
my inaction mirrored nothing...

Thank You Lord for those who speak, in and with an attitude of love;
and please help change and forgive those who don't...

All I know to say is "thanks Deb." My friend, my confidant, my encourager, my sister-in-Christ...I love you more than you realize. Your kind words were like a sweet balm to my heart. Thank you so much.
