I think I know a lot about myself. You know…my weaknesses, strengths, hang ups, prejudices. I’m self-aware. At least I think so.

And then something happens and I am surprised that I am not as aware as I thought.

The other day I was chatting with my daughter about exercise and she surprised me. I was surprised because she put words to something that in the depths of my soul I knew was true. She just named it. And it did not coincide with what I said about myself.

Read: Psalm 139:1-6

How well do you know yourself? Are there blind spots? Are you willing to hear where they might be? What prevents you from wanting to learn about yourself? What happens if you become more aware of self? Are you comfortable that God knows all about you, even the things you are blind to right now?
