Self-Examination (2)

Let us purify ourselves from everything
that contaminates body and spirit.
             —2 Corinthians 7:1

Today we continue with John Wesley’s 21 questions for self-examination.

  1. Do I get to bed on time and get up on time?
  2. Do I disobey God in anything?
  3. Do I insist upon doing something about which my conscience is uneasy?
  4. Am I defeated in any part of my life?
  5. Am I jealous, impure, critical, irritable, touchy or distrustful?
  6. How do I spend my spare time?
  7. Am I proud?
  8. Do I thank God that I am not as other people, especially as the Pharisee who despised the publican?
  9. Is there anyone whom I fear, dislike, disown, criticize, hold resentment toward or disregard? If so, what am I going to do about it?
  10. Do I grumble and complain constantly?
  11. Is Christ real to me?

You won’t get far on the right path until you
forgive yourself for having been on the wrong path.
