Meat and Potatoes: Your Hands

Greg Chandler

Jan 27 - Feb 1, 2020

Monday

For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. - James 1:23-24 (NLT)

My dad worked in the men’s clothing business for decades before he retired. I followed in his footsteps for a season while I was in college. I never really got the hang of marking a suit for alteration. Clients would come from all over the state to buy clothes from my dad because he knew how to get just the right fit. I can still see him helping a client try on a coat in front of a mirror. Mirrors were an important tool in dad’s work. It was only after his clients saw themselves in the mirror that they were satisfied and ready to make a purchase.

Some mirrors can distort a reflection like those at carnivals that can make someone who’s tall look short, or put a few pounds on someone who’s skinny. I’ve also heard rumors that department stores use mirrors in dressing rooms that create a more slender look for those trying on clothes.

All of that leaves me thinking—do I want a mirror that tells me the truth or one that reflects what I want to see?

Pastor Greg Laurie put it this way: “The Bible is like a mirror. It tells us the truth about ourselves. I’m liking mirrors less and less as I get older. Especially magnifying mirrors. Because then you see what everybody else sees. The Bible compares itself to a mirror. Mirrors will tell us the truth about ourselves. Now you have a choice. You can walk away in denial, or you can pay attention to what you see and do something about it."

Monday's Reflection

Read James 1:22–25. Ask the Father to help you embrace the Word as a true and trustworthy reflection of what is. If what you see in yourself is not desirable, He can help you change.
