The Truth About Harry

The Bible describes Jesus as being “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). That’s a difficult balance to keep. Sometimes we tell the truth, but aren’t very graceful about it. At other times, we may shade the truth in our attempts to show grace.

I heard about one family that was having difficulty writing a proper obituary for their Uncle Harry, who had just been executed in prison for crimes he had committed. They didn’t want to lie, but they didn’t want to bring shame on the family name either. Here is what they came up with. “He held a position in the chair of applied electronics in a prominent government institution.”

Let us never give up trying to speak the truth in a loving way.

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.”—Ephesians 4:15.
