Great Sermon! All your messages on speaking the truth in love are so beneficial. I am active in a discipling church which puts me in the very situations you are speaking of. I however have not handled them all in the way you speak. You so touched my heart in this area. I came from a home that did not communicate, but just had a dictorial attitude, this has left me with the heart to mentor, but not always the skills. We also have a teenage son that we adopted that has many difficulties because of severe abuse. These teachings are so beneficial. Some of my difficulties are, I know what I should do, but many times my emotions take over. It's like I do not remember anything in the heat of the moment. Just this past week, because of my perception of being "rejected" I told this sister, "I do not want to disciple her" I wanted loyalty and then turned around and did the same thing to her that I did not want done to me. It sounds like a mess, but God and our woman's ministry leader has helped me so much........and your teachings. Do you have any books out or a web sight with more of your audio messages available. I thank God for your wisdom and insight, it must be wonderful to sit under you.
