July 24 – The Face in the Mirror

A young German couple rented a small bungalow in Los Angeles. Shortly after they moved in, the nosy woman who lived next door began peeping in their window in the mornings. So the husband, came up with an innovative solution. He placed a mirror in the window. When the neighbor peered in the window the next time, to her surprise and shock, she saw her own face reflected back at her. No more peeping! God’s Word too, has been described as a mirror. When we honestly look into it, we see a lot of undesirable traits. But let’s not be like the person described in the New Testament book of James, who, after observing his natural face in a mirror, goes away and immediately forgets what kind of a man he was…”- Such a man illustrates someone looking into the Bible, and not liking what is there conveniently forgetting. It is far better, having seen our true self revealed, that we turn to the Lord and ask Him to forgive us, and make the necessary changes.
