Pure in My Own Eyes
About the Guest
We have an uncanny ability to be selfish and deceitful all while looking in the mirror and thinking well of ourselves. Proverbs made that observation a long time ago: "the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes." (Proverbs 12:15) The most common person we lie to is ourselves...about ourselves. We exaggerate the other person's contribution to an argument while minimizing our own. Ask yourself, "If I was my co-worker, child, spouse, would I be frustrated interacting with me?" Stop lying to yourself.
