“If You Want To Know Your Self” ( Hebrews 4:12, WYC ) by Carley Evans

Ever look in the mirror, see your own eyes, and wonder, “Who is that?” Ever stare at a photograph taken by someone who knows you and think, “Is that me? That can’t be what I really look like to others.”
William Shakespeare, via his character Hamlet, writes:
“To thine own self be true; and it must follow, as the night the day, thou can not then be false to any man.”
In knowing your self, being honest to your self; you then must be honest and true with every other person, according to Shakespeare. Logically it follows then to know your self. God says to find your self — your real self — you must turn to Him. Once you find God and thereby your self, knowing both Him and your real self is best accomplished through the Word.
“For the word of God is quick, and speedy in working, and more able to pierce than any twain-edged sword [two-edged sword], and stretcheth forth [till] to the parting of the soul and of the spirit, and of the jointures and marrows, and deemer of thoughts, and of intents of hearts.”
The mirror is a fine instrument for checking your appearance, but if you want to know who you really are, open your Bible.
