Learning how to truly see our errors and make amends is maybe one of the hardest things to do.
Letting someone talk to you and cause you to rethink your words is a sign of humility.
I would encourage you to be willing to speak hard truths and at times, apologize, than to be so careful that you are never offensive.
Truth, by it’s nature, is offensive. This is more obvious now than just a few years ago. We must speak the truth. We must speak it in love. However, no matter how offensive, truth must still be spoken, no matter the offense.
Jesus, living love who was truth embodied, every group participated in his death. The fearful, the religious, the secular, no one stood with Him to His defense. At best, they washed their hands or stood and watched.
Unrepentant lazy men will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
Neither will unrepentant effeminate men.
Kudos for the humble desire to be kind. However, truth, even in it’s unvarnished presentation, far exceeds silence for fear of offense.
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
