Reflection is a rational exercise of observation, analysis and projection of thought. God has equipped each person with this ability, allowing man to understand what his consciousness develops through his experiences with his mind and reasoning.
We were all born with the purpose of knowing, progressing and developing in various areas of our lives. By reflecting well before acting, we can achieve balance and maturity.
Reflection is a useful tool for considering, meditating, understanding and knowing more about God, his creation and various aspects of life.
Even though it is a good thing, many people can misuse reflection, focusing their thoughts on bad things. This is why the Bible teaches us to renew our mind in God (Romans 12:2) and think about good, correct and excellent things (Philippians 4:8).
Have courage to use your thoughts in a dignified way that pleases God and allows you to advance in knowledge and grace. God knows your reflection and your thoughts. Observe the Word of God, think better and discover the countless benefits of changing the way you reflect!
