But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Ephesians 4:15 (KJV)
Our words greatly influence the course of our life and development. We are called to always speak the truth in love. This cultivates within us a deep sense of reverence for the truth, and it enables us to fellowship with God and with each other from a pure conscience. In doing this we are accelerating our process of growth and maturity, moving ever more fully towards embodying the fullness of who we are in Christ.
