A true friend is not only someone who builds you up with “kisses and kindness,” but also someone who is willing to deliver hard truths that help you grow into a better person. A person more aligned with God’s vision for you. A person willing to love you by being fully honest with you.
In this devotional episode of The Walk, Robbie Reider from Crossroads Church in Cincinnati, Ohio, shares an intimate look at a time in his life when his “Savior Complex” almost got in the way of God’s plan for his life. But, were it not for a true friend willing to deliver a truth that wasn’t so fun to hear, Robbie may have veered off course and missed the huge blessing that God had right in front him.
