To ascertain where you really are with the Lord, recall what saddened you the past month.  Was it the realization that you do not love Jesus enough?  That you did not seek his face in prayer often enough?  That you did not care for his people enough?  Or did you get depressed over a lack of respect, criticism from an authority figure, your finances, a lack of friends, fears about the future, or your bulging waistline?
