'Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. '

2 Timothy 4:2-5

1.) Can you think of a time when you or someone you know learned a hard truth from God?

2.) In today’s world telling someone what they want to hear vs what they need to hear can be hard. How can you be better at speaking the truth in love and not alienating someone?

3.) On the other hand, how can you be more receptive to hearing hard truths without getting angry or hurt?
