Confront Myself? Are You Kidding Me?

Hey there! Today, we're going to talk about something important: Self-Confrontation. This might sound like a big word, but it's about looking at ourselves honestly and seeing where we can improve with God's help.


Self-Confrontation vs. Self-Condemnation:

  • Self-confrontation isn't about being hard on yourself or feeling bad. It's not about lowering your self-esteem. Instead, it's like looking in a mirror to see the truth so you can clean up any thoughts, words, or actions.

  • The Bible tells us it's good to look at ourselves and see where we need to change. This isn't to make us feel bad but to help us grow.


Why We Need to Look at Ourselves:

  • Our hearts can sometimes trick us (Jeremiah 17:9). We might think we're doing everything right when we're not.

  • Looking at ourselves honestly, we can see where we need God's help to improve.


Learning to Love Others:

  • People might say you need to love yourself before you can love others. But the Bible teaches us that loving others and God is crucial (Matthew 22:37-39).

  • When we're honest about our mistakes and ask God for help, we learn to love others better.


Avoiding Selfishness:

  • The Bible warns us about only thinking of ourselves. This was a problem even a long time ago, like with Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:1-6) and when Satan tried to tempt Jesus (Luke 4:2-12).

  • Instead of just making ourselves happy, we should focus on pleasing God.


How to Do Self-Confrontation:

  • It's like checking yourself. Are you being kind, honest, and loving as Jesus taught us?

  • If you find something that's not right, it's okay. We all make mistakes. The important thing is to ask God to help you change and do better.


The Big Picture:

  • This isn't just about being a good person. It's about following Jesus and putting His teachings first in our life.

  • When we do this, we're not just saving our lives for ourselves but living for Jesus (Matthew 16:24-25).


Conclusion: Remember, Self-Confrontation is a good thing. It's like having a map that shows you where to go. Sometimes, it's tough, but with God's help, you can learn, grow, and be a better person for yourself and others.


I hope this helps you understand Self-Confrontation quickly and helpfully!


Remember, God loves you and is always there to help you grow.
