That person in the mirror

Chances are you looked at yourself in a mirror today.
Mirrors are very handy at observing one’s own face or body and correcting visual flaws.
With a mirror you can see the hair out of place, the smudge on the face, or something in your teeth.
If the mirror says your fat, then you must be.
Mirrors don’t lie.

Every Christian should look in the mirror everyday and ask, “How do others see me?”
Do they see what you see?
As you look in the mirror are you the person you project to be. If you claim to be a Christian, is this what you see in the mirror and is it what others see?

A reminder: there are three views of you.
The way you see yourself, the way others see you, and the way God sees you.

God says, “Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For 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.” James 1:22-24
