Self-Examinations Are Always Graded On A Curve

I answered this question 15 years ago, almost to the day. My answer surprised me, and changed my life.

Over the years, this question has become a self-examination I like to take again from time to time. It’s become a way for me to just take inventory of my life, and confront places of spiritual neglect, unbelief, and disobedience.

Bear in mind, you can’t think about, or contemplate, your answer. You have to say the first thing that comes to mind.

And, you have to say it out loud. That’s absolutely essential.

Blurt it out!

You don’t have be very loud, but loud enough for your brain to hear you. Trust me on this.

OK. Here we go. Are you ready?  If you want to share your answer, please do in a comment. However, I’ll understand if you want to keep it private. As this question has a way of revealing the deep things of the heart, I like to keep my answers private until I’ve had a chance to process what they mean.

Here is a pretty picture to cleanse your mental palate.
Remember: first thing that comes to mind.
