Carol Shields wrote a book called “Mirrors,” a short story about the 35 year marriage of a couple who practiced what she called “a particular Deprivation.” Every summer at their cottage, they deprived themselves of mirrors. For different reason of their own, they did not want to see their images in a mirror. The imaginary couple, in their late 50s could walk the length of their cottage and never see themselves in a mirror. Well, refusing to look in a mirror may give one temporary relief, but a day of facing reality always comes. Did you know the Bible speaks of mirrors? James wrote in the New Testament, “… if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror, for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of a man he was.” God’s Word reveals that we are strangers to God, and need to admit our spiritual bankruptcy, and receive forgiveness through faith in Christ. Remember please- you cannot hide from God.
