Frequent logging

As I read the familiar word’s of Jesus about getting the log out of my own eye, I thought of the importance of daily confession. Self examination is an important, and often neglected, aspect of our own spiritual development. It’s important to have a plan to examine our hearts and minds.

“Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?” (Matthew‬ ‭7:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

    Just a couple days ago I read chapter 3 of Richard Foster’s Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home. It is about exactly this, what he calls the “prayer of examen”. I cannot recommend this book enough! I am rereading in my devotional time now.
