This is a question Jesus would ask any of us? How do I know? Because the Holy Spirit is helping me with the questions, which relate to our inner being. As I mentioned previously, God wants us to examine ourselves.
So, when it comes to this question, one would say; yes, because I look after myself.
And then he would ask; how?
Well, I wash my hair and make sure that I have a nice haircut. To be honest, sometimes I’m not even bothered about my hair, so I let it go wild.
Hmm… Father in heaven examines the mind and the heart of a person, but man looks at outside appearance.
I also make sure I bathe regularly, because I know keeping a good hygiene is important. And I try to eat healthy, making sure that I have a good balanced diet.
Well, I try to make good decisions to keep me on the right track.
Well, I decided to get married, which is good for me.
That’s good, what else?
I try to be a responsible person, that’s why I work hard sometimes, to pay the bills, and look after my family.
It is good to know you take responsibility to heart.
I also try to make good friends to make me happy.
The thing is, as you know, most of us want to have the good things in life. However, here is the issue, if a person really cares about themselves they wouldn’t want to face the wrath of God. People who listen to God through the Bible and want to be saved through Jesus really care about themselves. Anyone who cares would want to be forgiven for their sins. And they would avoid doing bad things because of the negative consequences. The scripture says, you reap what you sow.
