Have you seen ads for Clearsil, Proactiv, or other acne treatments? They usually exaggerate things and show the face before and aft the application of the "miraculous" product that makes you look good and perfect. They also make sure you get hooked to the remedy so they can bank on you. They show how a person with acne is not accepted and how they suddenly become lovable after their skin is cleansed from the rush.

Well today I want to teach you how to get rid of spiritual acne. God accepts you just as you are, he loves you even if you have iniquities, but He cannot bless you if you keep having wrong attitudes that burst from your heart.

James 1:23-25 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
