Has anyone besides me noticed how easily most of us are able to identify and point out the sins, faults and the failures of everyone but ourselves?
Think about it. When was the last time you hosted a gripe session with your friends, and the person you were complaining about was you? When was the last time you said, “I get on my nerves! I can’t depend on myself for anything!”
In the text that serves as the foundation of our inspirational message, King David wrote these words in Psalm 51, verse 3, “For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me.”
David wrote Psalm 51 after being confronted by Nathan the prophet about his adulterous relationship with Bathsheba. There was no explanation for David’s behavior. David had sinned and there was no one to blame but himself.
People of God, it is good to take a look in the mirror, not only to reflect on our physical appearance, but to reflect on our behaviors and conduct. We are quick to talk about others and point out their faults; but in the meanwhile, we have faults, too.
Although we may be Christians, we all still have sin and faults before us that we have to confront, war against, and ask forgiveness for when we fall short.
Therefore, before you open your mouth to talk about me and my faults, be sure to
Look at yourself and yours…
