“Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.” Pr 27:6 NLT
Who tells you the truth?
When it comes to seeing ourselves clearly, we all have blind spots. So we need people who’ll tell us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. When someone really loves you, they’ll feel compelled to point out the shortcomings in your life, the sinfulness, and areas that need improvement. You may be tempted to dismiss them, but you need to get beyond the sting of their words and listen for the truth in their message. The writer of Proverbs tells us, “Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.” The truth sometimes hurts. But you must have faith that the encouragers in your life really have your best interests at heart. If you’re ever to experience a sense of accomplishment in this life you need someone you can trust; someone who sees where you are, and where the path you’re on is leading. If you want to really know yourself and how you come across to others, you need a trustworthy mirror committed to reflecting the truth back at you instead of what you want to hear. And if you find yourself resenting the very input you need, think about these Scriptures: “The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice” (Pr 12:15 NIV). “Pride…breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice” (Pr 13:10 NIV). “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed” (Pr 15:22 NIV). So here’s the question: Who tells you the truth? That person is your real friend!
