Self-awareness is the experience of one's own personality or individuality.
We must come to a place where we can consciously, and honestly look in the mirror to evaluate ourselves. This is necessary in order to grow and become better vessels for the kingdom of God.
We all know how easy it is to readily judge others, because of what we can visibly see, but can you see yourself? If we’re being honest, we only see the good in ourselves.
Coming to a place of conscious self-awareness will allow us to change the negative narrative around faults and weaknesses, essentially promoting growth.
Let's face it, many people only believe what they see, and they NEED to see an example. What if you're the only true Believer they encounter? Are you living a life that represents God?
People need to see God moving in your life, changing and rearranging you, as you raise the standard.
1 Timothy 4:16 NLT
16 Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.
MSG version, Cultivate these things. Immerse yourself in them. The people will all see you mature right before their eyes! Keep a firm grasp on both your character and your teaching. Don’t be diverted. Just keep at it. Both you and those who hear you will experience salvation.
Be conscious, be aware, and become the example. Why?
It's bigger than you! The people need to see it!
