Face the Facts

Face the Facts

It is extremely tempting to avoid facing facts—and this is called denial. Most of us have ingenious ways of doing this, from distracting ourselves, lying to ourselves, twisting truths and even facing something but telling ourselves it is not what it is. Yes, these are all patterns of thinking that keep us trapped in our old ways of living. The solution, as you know, is to have our minds transformed-“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind,” says the Apostle Paul (Romans 12: 2). As our minds are transformed we can more easily see how we have been deceiving ourselves and others.
