Self-Image

Realistic view of ourselves, no comparisons, false views of others, excusing sin
I am who God says I am, and you are who God says you are.

Paul said, "I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me." 1 Corinthians 4:3-4

It's easy to have the wrong view of ourselves due to: 

1. Self-deception (Jeremiah 17:9-10; 2 Corinthians 10:18).

2. The false perspective of others (1 Samuel 16:7).

3. Comparisons (2 Corinthians 10:12).

4. Excuses for sin (1 John 1:9-10).

But when we humble ourselves, letting the Lord judge, correct, and commend us (1 Peter 5:6), we gain a realistic view of who we are.

"Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you." Romans 12:3
