Speaking The Truth When Someone Doesn't Want To Hear It

Jeanne Mayo/Vance Smith

The Bible teaches us to "speak the truth in love" and "restore a person gently..." but what if they don't want to hear it? As Christian leaders we need to take seriously the privilege and responsibility of speaking truth to people we are leading...even when it's difficult. Learning to do this will help you build trust in your relationships as people realize your sincere heart is not to, "call them out," but to make them better. Taking wisdom from Galatians 6:1-2, and years of practical experience from decades in youth ministry, Jeanne shares thoughts on how navigate this crucial leadership skill effectively.
