Am I Afraid?

There have been many times that I have been afraid to say something for fear that the person I said something to would view me as judgmental, stuck-up, or too legalistic.  But, I came across a short writing of Amy Carmichael's yesterday through her book "IF."  I hope that it might encourage all of us to not be afraid of standing up for Him and His truth (Romans 1:16).

"If I am afraid to speak the truth, lest I lose affection, or lest the one concerned should say, 'You do not understand,' or because I fear to lose my reputation for kindness; if I put my own good name before the other's highest good, then I know nothing of Calvary love."
