So when she sat across the table from me and said, "You're wrong," it nearly took my breath away.
She has challenged my thinking many times, but never to this level of disagreement. What could this mean? Would she think less of me now? Was this difference of opinion going to affect our relationship? I didn't like the feeling.
But if she truly felt I was wrong and said nothing, wouldn't that be worse? If she perceived my thinking as going down the wrong path, but kept quiet, could I call her reliable or faithful? If she kept her mouth shut, would she be my friend?
She took the hard route, the risky, selfless way.
She loved me.
Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
