When does a child first become self-conscious? According to Doctor Taghi Modoressi, a professor at the University of Maryland, a child under 10 months does not notice any difference between an accurate or distorted reflection, but from ages 2-5, has developed a definite self-image. In light of this, it is interesting to note that the Bible, which is likened to a mirror, shows a picture of how God sees us. It tells us that “there is none righteous, no not one”, and compares us to “sheep who have gone astray.” Unfortunately, some of us, like children under 2 years, see a distorted image, viewing ourselves as good and able to make it on our own. Thankfully, God lovingly invites us to accept reality and ask Him for forgiveness, cleansing and to become a member of His family. You can accept that invitation, by sincerely praying, “God be merciful to me, a sinner…” and save me.
