  • We have an uncanny ability to be selfish and deceitful all while looking in the mirror and thinking well of ourselves. Proverbs made that observation a long time ago: "the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes." (Proverbs 12:15) The most common person we lie to is ourselves...about ourselves. We exaggerate the other person's contribution to an argument while minimizing our own. Ask yourself, "If I was my co-worker, child, spouse, would I be frustrated interacting with me?" Stop lying to yourself.

Ron: You know that last argument you had—it was definitely the other person’s fault.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: You know, we have an uncanny ability to be selfish and deceitful all while looking in the mirror and thinking well of ourselves. Proverbs made that observation a long time ago: “the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes.” (Proverbs 12:15) You see, the most common person we lie to is ourselves…about ourselves. We exaggerate the other person’s contribution to an argument while minimizing our own. Convenient, huh.

Okay, ask yourself, “If I was my co-worker, child, spouse, would I be frustrated interacting with me?” Stop lying to yourself. The truth will set you free. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
