Did you ever notice when you start to read the Bible at times, instead of applying it to your own life, you think about how the scripture you’re reading could benefit someone else? I do it all the time. Oh, that would be great for my kids. That would be great for my husband. Oh, my best friend might get something out of this.
But what about me? How is it changing my life? How is it getting me closer to God? I think that is my struggle as of late. I see everyone else and see where I think they are at and I take my giant pole and smack them around as I try to get the spot out of their eye.
So what am I going to do about this? All I can think of is pray and ask God to use His word to truly penetrate my own heart. Not looking at what others have to fix, but what I need changed in my own life. Especially when my “better than you” attitude shows its ugly head. What about you?
