A husband snuck up the stairs quietly one evening as his wife was sleeping. He looked in the bathroom mirror and bandaged the bumps and bruises he’d received in a bar room fight earlier that night. He doctored himself up, then proceeded to climb into bed, smiling at the thought that he’d pulled one over on his wife. When morning came, he opened his eyes and there stood his wife. “You were drunk last night weren’t you!” “No, honey. I wasn’t.” “Well, if you weren’t, then who put all the Band-Aids on the bathroom mirror?”
The mirror of God's word always reflects the truth. "For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man shall be blessed in what he does" (James 1:23-25).
We can choose to put the bandages on the mirror or where they belong. Many try to find fault with the mirror, but that's not where the fault is. The mirror is just reflecting the truth. What we choose to do about it is up to us. Come see what you need to see in a study of God's word.
