Speaking the truth in love goes well with this under used truth.
Most people rarely speak into one another's lives from a biblical perspective and just as infrequently seek for others to do so in their lives. Lord please help us all especially the household of faith.

This is wise counsel for any one calling themselves a Christian and mainly if they preach. We must stay ready to use our spiritual gift for God!
