Step Four thought and scripture – Day 19.
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.
As we take inventory of ourselves it is important to measure ourselves against the Word of God and to not just measure ourselves against ourselves. When we do this then our behaviors can begin to become relative. We need to be honest and compare ourselves to God’s word.
