23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 NIV)
Growth comes from a continual and honest self assessment. Extending that assessment and seeing ourselves from the Spirt’s and other’s point of view can provide even greater insight.
This, of course, presupposes we are willing to change.
