- "But I am not perfect. I am not mature. I sin all the time!"
It's like a lot of us have spiritual anorexia - we are super skinny, but when we look in the mirror we see this fat person. And the more we feed our thought life with the lie - about being sinful, ruined, without any good - the more that will become a reality. That's why Paul says to think about whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, worthy of praise...
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Prov. 23:7
But John says that the real truth is that as Jesus is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). Eat THAT!
