Step Four thought and scripture – Day 17.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Having made this decision, I now obey God’s call in Scripture to make a fearless, ethical, moral, and scriptural inventory of my entire life in order to uncover all sins, mistakes, and character defects and to make a written list of every item uncovered.
When making a fearless inventory of ourselves we can go through a mourning process. In the sermon on the mount Jesus stated many ways for us to be blessed. One of which is He blesses us as we mourn. As we look at areas of our life where we messed up we become blessed as we find the healing and comfort from the Lord.
