Charles Spurgeon once told of sitting in a nice restaurant. As he ate he kept noticing a rather angry looking man across the dining room who scowled at him every time he looked his way. Finally Spurgeon decided to go over and speak to the man to see what his problem was. However, as he stood he realized that what he had been seeing was his own reflection in mirrors that lined the walls across the room. We may not always like what we see in the mirror of God's Word but what we see there is always the truth.
At least once each day, and probably several times, we stand before a mirror and review the way we look. If an adjustment is necessary, and it usually is, then we straighten our clothes or comb our hair all because the mirror has helped us by revealing things about how we really look. The word of God is a moral mirror which the Holy Spirit uses to enable us to see ourselves as we really are. The view we get is not what we think based on experience or what others think based on their observations, it is how God sees us. But the problem is that many people today don’t read or understand the Bible. This is not because they don't have a Bible. The Bible is present in almost every home in America. The problem is that it is not read and applied.
