Have you looked in the mirror lately? It can give you a jolt. We usually experience a reality check, so some try to improve the image by accenting, hiding, darkening or lightening. Yet we hardly ever quite look the way we wish. It is better to accept what we cannot change, remembering that according to the Good Book, “Man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart.” And that Good Book, the Bible, gives us a spiritual reality check. It informs us that “all have sinned,” and that we cannot make ourselves into Christians. But thankfully, it also assures us that while we are all sinners by nature and by choice, Jesus Christ died for us on a cross. If we accept God’s assessment of what we are really like, He offers forgiveness and the gift of eternal life. Now what do you think of that?
