Proverbs 11:14 (NKJV) Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
Have you ever marveled at the fact that people can remain unaware of certain character flaws and relational issues when they are quite clear to almost everyone who knows them? Have you ever cringed at the likelihood that you too have issues that you are not aware of? I know this message is especially for someone today!
These are called “blind spots.” We all have them, so we all need the help of others in learning to see them. We need to have God and the right people in our life to help in this critical area of our lives.
If you are married, there’s probably nobody more equipped to help you locate and constructively address your blind spots than your spouse. Furthermore, there’s no relationship that stands to gain more for having done so. If you are not married, you should find a friend to give permission to talk to you honestly about your blind spots. Do you have a person to help you? and in some cases it’s not your spouse.
Love can be warm and fuzzy, but sometimes it’s hard and it’s real tough. Just remember-“it’s still love”.
Quote- Anne Sophie Swetchine- “We deceive ourselves when we fancy that only weakness needs support. Strength needs it far more.”
Pastor James Baker, Jr.
