Mark Lauterbach has some compelling thoughts on introspection from the Sovereign Grace Leadership Conference here. He reports, ...in answer to the question of how much time a typical Christian should spend in introspection. "About 10-20 seconds a day," he said. (Correction: he said, about 10-20 seconds per situation, that it does not take that long to see our cravings.) Now he said that was an exaggeration, but his point was to look inward just long enough to see the motives of the heart and then quickly look back to the Savior, crucified and risen. From there, move to repentance. How much time do we spend dwelling on ourselves rather than on the richness of Christ's finished and perfect work on the cross for His redeemed?
