Day 28: Seeing The Truth About Yourself

0310283671READING:  pages 239-247

There are two major truths about ourselves that we can never forget: 1) I have sinned and 2) I am a sinner.  As we understand these two things it should cause us to become more compassionate and merciful to those around us.  The truth about us should give us empathy for others.

I have found the best way to live is to work on my own life first!  As a pastor this can be challenging!  There are people who are constantly in need or asking advice or that I need to bring correction to.  It’s a demanding schedule, but I love it!!!

So how do we see the truth about ourself?

  1. Ask God to show you areas of your life that need to be worked on.
  2. Seek God for strength in making progress in these areas.
  3. Forgive others like Jesus has forgiven you.

VERSE:  “Mercy triumphs over judgment” (James 2:13).
