When Being Candid Becomes Evil

Most mornings after reading some of the Gospels, I read some from a book called Precious Bible Promises compiled by Samuel Clarke, a Puritan minister.  This morning I read two brief sections on promises related to speaking the truth and candor.  Speaking the truth in love is always good, but candor has its limits.  Always saying everything that we know or expressing all that we feel is not always recommended.  When our words or feelings become hurtful without edification, judgmental, and gossip, we shouldn’t express them.  Candor has its limits, and in fact, too much candor is evil.
