Does your self-examination turn into cross-examination?


think againJared Mellinger asks, “do you overdose on introspection” in his book, “Think Again”.  Are we focusing too much on how we see ourselves than how God sees us?

A little self-examination is good, but if we obsess too much about our faults, our guilt, what we have done, what we haven’t done, then we become our own idol.

Mellinger explains how the gospel frees us from our own thoughts and opens us up to the truth about ourselves.  He reminds us to put our focus on Christ and find our purpose in Him, not ourselves.

Some of us have grown stagnant because we focus on the guilt Christ died to save us from.  Mellinger helps us define our false guilt.

This short book is filled with wisdom and sensitivity.  He doesn’t add more guilt to our already full plate, but with sensitivity, compassion and wisdom sits us down and confronts our misunderstanding of introspection and guide us to the truth that God yearns for us to know.
