I'm Starting with the (Wo)man in the Mirror

The sermon at church today was so wonderful. It was not the typical Easter sermon, but it was just what I needed to hear. Apparently others agreed. So many people came forward and were saved today! It was absolutely amazing to see God work in such a big way. This song, Man In the Mirror, was actually performed at the end of the service. We could all do with a little less pride and a little more humility. We could all stand to take a longer look at the person in the mirror.
How can we complain about the world's problems when we do nothing to help? How can we have a legitimate complaint about anything before we deal with our sin and our own dirt? It's so easy to point fingers at others for causing our problems. We have to admit our fault in our situation first, or in some cases realize that we were not the one at fault. Then we have to do what we can to remedy the situation, which includes taking the problem to God in prayer and trusting that he will never lead you in the wrong direction.
When we are at peace with ourselves, it is easier to help others. I challenge you to spend some time soul searching. I will be looking in my mirror long and hard, too.
