King David committed adultery, and then murder to cover it up. He thought that he was free and clear. What he didn’t realize was that everyone knew about it. Everyone could see something in him that he himself could not see. Becoming self-aware is the important work of becoming conscious of your own character and feelings. It is seeing yourself through the eyes of others, and most importantly, seeing yourself through the eyes of God. Self-awareness is absolutely necessary for spiritual growth. There are four steps to becoming more self-aware: (1) Ask the people who know you; (2) Consistently search your heart for your motives; (3) Ask God to reveal things to you; (4) make a fearless inventory of your last few spiritual fails and ask yourself what you did to contribute to it. (5) Pray for spiritual growth.
