Take a Good Look at Yourself

Luke 11:35-36 Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don’t get musty and murky. 36 Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room.”

The first time I took an honest inventory of my life, my habits and attitudes was whilst staying in the William Booth Men’s Hostel in Whitmore Square in Adelaide in 1989. I had made a decision if I wanted my life to change I needed to know and understand myself. I still have a copy of that inventory. The language is colorful. A number of times in my spiritual walk I have re read it to remind myself where I begun this journey of spiritual recovery. Some of the things I wrote were not the truth nut at the time I believed them to be true. It is a true expression of how I was feeling at that time.

When was the last time you took an honest look at yourself?
