Proverbs 27:19 -- On Reflections

"As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man."
Proverbs 27:19

Interesting idea.  Seeing our hearts in one another might be a way of saying that we look for our own weaknesses in other people, or expect from other people what we would do in a similar circumstance.  And so if we expect treachery or dishonesty, it might be a clue that we need to look at ourselves and ask why.  Do we have treachery and dishonesty in our hearts?  On the other hand, if we expect good from people, perhaps that reflects our hearts as well.

Either way, it seems that the way to solve the whole world's problems is to start improving our reflections, eh?  Today, let's make sure we work on ourselves and our perceptions, motivations, and expectations.   As we do, hopefully we will improve our outlook and expect better from the world, which will improve our reflections.  And if we expect good from each other, often we'll live up to that expectation, so we will be helping each other become better and building a Zion community. :)
