In our relationships, if something is really bothering us and we don’t address it, but instead we pretend that nothing is wrong, then we’re not really being honest. When someone asks us, “What’s wrong?” And we say, “Nothing.”—that’s a lie. Pastor Ford will ask us today—How can we actually discover truth in our conversations with others, when we choose to ignore it ourselves?
