Apr 30 – Look In The Mirror

Last month, a veteran politician Jim Prentice, Premier of Alberta, made a statement which has caused him some backlash. He may regret having said it. Referring to the financial difficulties in Alberta related to the drop in oil prices, Prentice said, “in terms of who is responsible, we need only look in the mirror. Basically, all of us have had the best of everything and have not had to pay for what it costs.” It may not have been good politics, but it was probably very close to the truth. It reminds one of the rather blunt statement in the New Testament, where James was inspired to write, “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 man he was.” When we look into the Bible and learn that we are in need of a Saviour, it is foolish for us to see it, then go away and try to forget what we have seen. We too need to “look into the mirror” of God’s Word and then take the appropriate action
