Stepping Outside Of Yourself

26 Oct

Stepping Outside Of Yourself…

Did you ever look at a photograph of yourself? There’s something about it; you can’t fool yourself. But when you see a photograph, and you don’t realize it’s you at first, and that person looks so different – you may be seeing yourself objectively for the first time.

The reason is you didn’t realize it was you first because you were beside yourself. Paul spoke of being beside himself. It can be good to be beside yourself. Put yourself beside yourself.

Step out of your life and imagine if it wasn’t yours. See how it matches up to the way it should be. Put yourself in your wife’s place, and see how it is to have you as a husband.

Put yourself in your parents’ place to see how it is to have you as a child, or your children’s place to see how it is to have you as a parent.

Put yourself in the Lord’s place to see what kind of service you’re giving Him, and then do unto others as you would have to yourself. It all starts when you get beside yourself.

And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:39

Today seek to see yourself from outside yourself – take a good hard, objective look at your life, your attitude – and make whatever changes you need to make.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
