Questions I must ask myself...
Do I really love my neighbor as myself? no
Am I self-righteous and scornful of others? no comment
Do I seek recognition and my own glory? well...
Do I, intentionally or unintentionally, leave out others so that they percieve me as a snot? um...
Have I hurt other peoples' feelings with my own ignorant words?
Am I a selfish wife, mother, friend, acquaintance, mentor, etc..?
Is it hard for me to receive instruction?
Am I prideful and arrogant?
Do I care more about what the scale says than my husband says?
Do I think like a believer covered by God's grace? It is hard to remember...
Is it hard to be submissive to a man who loves me more than himself?
Do I hate getting and looking older?
Do I harbor bitterness against others?
Why is it so hard to live sometimes? I am the picture of the naked, bleeding orphan who was adopted to grow up and be a harlot against her own beloved Savior. Why is it so hard to love something or someone? I know that I am a child of the true King, and yet I wear my rags of righteousness so well. I'm tired and I feel weak. I will still sin in this filthy body and I will reek of the perfume of my own unrighteousness. And He still loves me. And He still sought me and made me His own. I am clueless and He teaches me.
