Know Thyself (Part 1)
Topic of Discussion: Know Thyself (Socrates)
We are who we choose to be.
Life is but a series of choices.
It is through God’s eyes that we see ourselves most clearly.
Who knows us better than God? Not even ourselves.
Life is a series of choices. Knowing thyself is an important aspect to navigating life’s series of choices and being successful at the decisions you make.
When you aren’t sure… even when you are sure, you can still make a wrong decision. But the one who knows us better than anyone else is not our spouse, mortal best-friend, parent, or sibling- it’s God. Who better to know us than the Creator, Himself?
Proverbs 3:6 says, “in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
In everything you do, submit to God. Submit your thoughts, choices, ideas, desires, and needs. God will make your paths straight. He has gone before each of us, knowing what lies ahead.
Go on a journey with me into knowing thyself. Meditate on God's Word, where your life has gone when you have sought God's guidance, and what direction it has taken when you have gone it alone.
Ask yourself this: Do I know thyself? What don't I know about myself? What do I want to know about myself? Am I prepared to take a leap of faith today, and seek God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and man, made in God's image- and ask the all important question of: God what do you see when you look at me?
A philosopher said, know thyself. The Creator of the heavens and the earth said, in Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
