Windows and mirrors. Both owe their usefulness to the glass they are made of. Both may hold helpful reminders to us of how to navigate relationships in these potentially hazardous times. Some may blame the ills they are experiencing to the difficult people around them, or to the ill-advised decisions of government, or to a foreign country. Others may turn their focus inward, clouding their perspectives with fear or pride or self-deception.
It is freeing and healthy to examine our contribution to any relational battlefields we may be facing – looking in the mirror so as to honestly admit and confess our responsibility for fights and irritations. After an honest assessment of our own imperfections we can then look out of our windows to see how we can affirm, encourage and bless the other people in our lives. The Bible tells us, “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers” Ephesians chapter 4 verse 29.
