Breaking Mirrors

The older we get, the less we like to see what stares back at us from the mirror. The temptation might be to simply deal with the problem by smashing the mirror.

I’m not superstitious, but breaking a mirror CAN bring misfortune. Not bad luck — rather, hardships and bitter experiences in the future.

The Book of James describes the Word of God as a mirror. We look into it and are made aware of the harsh realities of our flaws and failures. But the answer is not to break the mirror, as so many choose to do. This only sets us up for pain and misfortune down the road. The answer is to turn to our Creator and ask Him to change the man in the mirror.
