2 Cor 3:18 – But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
If man is forever navel gazing at himself, he will never look into the “Mirror” and find his true identity. Gaze at Jesus, not yourself. He is your mirror. In Him our true lives are hidden for us.
