The same thing can be said for telling the truth. Something as simple as telling someone what you really think about their hair (in love, obviously!) can feel freeing. It’s so nice to have relationships in life where the truth is mutually appreciated, shared and forthcoming.
Our relationship with Jesus is based on nothing but truth. (On His end, anyway!) We can trust that what He says is true. And right. And perfect. We may, from time to time, try to hide certain parts of us. We may think that we NEED to in order to receive His love. But Jesus is all-knowing. He IS truth. Knowing, serving and loving Him sets us free.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:32
