 Paul in Romans makes clear that our Heavenly Father not only loves us but expects us to grow more and more into His family's character.  However, we have a problem. It is a sin problem, and it is not going to go away with one act, one declaration, one pill, or one decision.  We have a sin problem, and the sooner we recognize that no matter how hard we try, we will mess up and need to own our mistake, our backbiting, our bad attitude, our addiction to whatever, or any of a hundred other trips and falls we have in this mortal life, the sooner we can rid ourselves of that layer of bad choices and grow a bit more like Him.  No one is righteous, and we all fall, at least daily if not hourly or even moment by moment as we struggle to keep our flesh under control and our hearts clean.   We just have to accept that our travel through this life will not be a perfect walk and that we cannot do it alone.   This fact then underscores our need for self-examination.  It is always better to confront the person in the mirror than to ignore our poor choices, bad behaviors, and daily missteps and force our Father to confront us.  He is very aware of our sin nature, but loves us enough to correct, and shape, and teach, and guide, and even put us into strong punishment if we do not own the problem, ask forgiveness, and seek to make it right.  The heart.  Man looks on the outside, but God is all about our heart.  Our bodies will not go into eternity, but the issues of the heart and the attitudes of our soul will.  Trust in His guidance and correction to continually work on us to keep walking in the light.  Do your part and face that person in the mirror.  Be brutally honest, get on your face before the Lord, and then and only then can you walk in newness of life.
