Speaking the truth in love

Ephesians 4:15-16 (ESV)
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (ESV)
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

. . . speaking the truth in love . . .
With unveiled face
. . . speaking the truth in love . . .
Beholding the glory
. . . speaking the truth in love . . .
Are being transformed
. . . speaking the truth in love . . .
From one degree of glory to another
. . . speaking the truth in love . . .
For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit

O Father,
Teach us in the Mississippi Delta to speak the truth in love. Amen.
