Living Spiritual Rhythms–January 8

We may be so rightly worried about saying too much, that we wrongly say nothing at all. This configuration shows that we have to deal with two potential problems, not just one. And these two problems are found in many areas of life: interpretation, knowledge, and relationships, to name just a few. Our trajectory for negotiating our way through the thicket of conflict with ourselves and others on these problems calls us to be cautious, caring, and respectful, but to aim to speak truth in love. As we live out this formidable task, it will be impossible to not say anything or to say everything.
