Looking in a mirror is usually an unhappy experience for me, but I have to admit they do give reflections that I need to see. We bought a house that came with a lot of full-lenth mirrors, and I believe seeing myself was the beginning of my desire to lose weight. It's so easy to "forget" about any problem if you just choose not to look at it. But it's harder to avoid reality when it is staring you in the face every time you turn the corner.
Which makes me wonder, what else am I avoiding about myself that could use some improvement? I've heard it said that God's law is a mirror, and that it shows us our sin and our need for a Savior. The first step to making any change in your life is to admit that you need to change...that you have a problem! I would like to become friends with the mirror some day, because what I see reflected is a trimmer, healthier me. And I would like to become friends with God's mirror too, reflecting the love of Jesus out to everyone I meet.
