After so many miles, and so many miles that were definitely the opposite of bug-free, Uriah needed a bath. Jesse took the time to work on him last Saturday.
Part of normal life is cleaning. Everyone in some fashion has to clean (i.e. even washing your hands!). Life requires it. It’s something we do. Some enjoy it more than others, but a homemaker is wise if she learns to enjoy it :-).
As important as physical cleaning is, our spiritual cleansing is even more important.Â Dirt is like sin, it doesn’t go away Â by itself. It takes sacrifice of time and effort to rid the home of dirt and it took the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross to pay the debt of sin that we could not remove ourselves. It also takes daily cleansing of our hearts before the Lord in repentance.
Many do not take or care to spend time in God’s Word each day. May we encourage you, if you haven’t already, to make it a daily habit of cleansing yourself in God’s Word. Don’t allow other things to crowd out that time. Make it your priority. It’s something each of us Maxwells do first thing in our morning :-).
“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow” (Psalms 51:7).
“Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart” (Psalms 119:111).
