The Man In The Mirror

“I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.”  -Steven Wright (comedian)

Others’ perceptions, and our own perception of others’ perceptions can many times be a reflection of how we see ourselves.  Sometimes, even if this reflection is positive, it doesn’t change how negatively one feels about oneself.  Ultimately when we each look in the mirror every day, we have to like what we see.  For this to happen we must (1) mirror the life of Christ, and (2) we must see ourselves through the unconditional lens of God’s love. 

James 1:23-25 - Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is LIKE someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
