How often do you see your reflection in a mirror? Some studies say that the average person looks in a mirror 8-10 times per day. Other studies say it could be as many as 70-85 times per day, if glancing at our reflection in store windows and smart phone screens is included.

Just why do we look so often? Most experts say that it is to check our appearance, especially before meetings or social gatherings. If something is amiss, we desire to correct it. Why look if we aren't going to change what's wrong?

If we seriously hear God's Word without taking action, we fool ourselves. But when we examine ourselves in light of God's Word and obey His instructions, God will liberate us from all that keeps us from looking more and more like Him each day.
