To the Point: Heart to Heart

I had a long heart-to-heart talk with a dear friend of mine last night.  We laughed; we cried; we honestly shared our hopes and concerns.  We disagreed on a few things, but our friendship was not harmed because we value each other’s ideas and will carefully consider each other’s loving advice.

Genuinely loving someone is doing what is best for that person.  It is helping that person mature and move forward in a positive direction, even if their personal growth will involve some growing pains.

Genuinely loving someone is NOT hiding the truth to avoid dealing with the risk of conflict or disappointment.

Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.

~ Proverbs 27:6
