It is only when we look at ourselves with honest eyes that we can hold ourselves accountable to live up to our stated values. It is so tempting to rationalize our actions and shortcomings with excuses or self-pity. Stand up today and realize who you really can be by avoiding any real lies, especially to yourself.
So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
James 4:17 (NABRE)
