Paul sets the example. First he opens his heart, and then he urges others to do the same. Can you imagine doing this yourself? Why would you do this?
Because you want to know your own heart! You want others to help you see the motives, inclinations, and even the sin in your own heart so you can move toward greater wholeness, health, and holiness. You will never have integrity without transparency. A trusted brother or sister in Christ is a means of grace in your life as you get to know one anothers hearts. And get to know your own heart!
So, seek out a spiritual friend with whom you can be open and honest. And open up your heart!
