The Best Thing to Tell Yourself in the Mirror

Ever talk to yourself? Ever talk to yourself in the mirror?

We usually have one thing in mind when we look in the mirror.


What we look like. What others will think. Whether what we do while we’re looking in the mirror will make us look better.

It’s all about us.

This is why the mirror is the best place to talk to ourselves.

It’s the best time to consider what our lives are all about.

Or Who they’re all about.

Looking in the mirror is the best time to practice turning our thoughts on Someone Else.

Each of us came into the world thinking we were the center of the universe. We were treated that way for the first few weeks of our lives. We went through years of growth, awkwardness, and trying to find ourselves.

Then we hit the age when we knew everything.

Right now, all of us are either at the place where God has shown us this isn’t the case, or He’s about to take us through something that will teach us this lesson.

If we were the center of the universe, we’d know all the answers, and the answers wouldn’t matter.

The best thing to say to ourselves in the mirror is this: “God is the King of all the earth.” (Psalm 47:7)

Kings reign and die. Subjects live and learn.

You and I live our lives. We eat, we work. We love, laugh, buy, and sell.

We look in the mirror.

But the sooner we realize our lives aren’t all about us, the sooner we’ll learn to cast every trouble, need, heartache, and question on the One who knows all the answers.

He is King over all the earth.

Let’s tell ourselves that every time we look in the mirror.

“The LORD reigns. . . Your throne is established from of old;

You are from everlasting.” (Psalm 93:1,2)
