THE MIRROR OF TRUTH
Dr. Tony Evans tells the story of a native in a foreign country who had never seen a mirror before. The missionaries brought one over. This native girl had never seen what she looked like. She walked up and for the first time in her life looked at a mirror and saw herself. The mirror had been nailed to a tree. Not liking the image before her, she took the mirror off the tree and slammed it to the ground.
She did not like what the mirror had to say so she got rid of the mirror. When we come before the mirror of God’s Word, the first thing we will see is ourselves. Many of us don’t want the mirror to tell us the truth because we won’t like what it tells us.
Truth is telling it like it is.
