California School Removes Mirrors
A California high school in an affluent neighborhood has removed all the mirrors from the girls’ bathroom and replaced them with signs of positive affirmation instead. [reference article below]
Folks, there is no freedom in this.
Folks, there is no freedom in this, only a prison of self-centeredness.
Folks, there is no freedom to be found in vanity praise-worship of oneself – only madness.
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–he will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:21-25)
- God’s mirror reflects faults, forgiveness and faith.
- Your mirror reflects frivolities, forfeiture and failure.
Lesson: Mirrors are meant to reveal faults so they can be resolved. Only upon honestly admitting faults, even the fault of being vain about one’s beauty, can the reality of God’s Word set a man, or woman, free for the abundant life. This is why “my” sermons offend me – for such reveal the faults that must be addressed. Looking intently in this mirror, remembering and obeying, one gains freedom – glorious freedom. Oh to weep for such a self-absorbed generation – a corrupted generation – God give me His tears for such that are so very lost. Lord grant the love to break the mirror and endure the fit-throwing.
