Happy Monday. Is something “nagging” you today?
Last week I thoroughly cleaned my refrigerator. I took every thing out; food, shelves, crisper drawer, and washed the interior with good sudsy water.
It sparkled when things were placed back after tossing some things that had seen a better day.
I felt such an accomplishment!
Regularly I clean things that are seen; dusting tables, cleaning floors, etc.
I confess! When it comes to the “hidden” things, such as drawers, closets, and yes, refrigerators, I don’t get excited about taking care of them.
But I do it!
I feel so convicted of what procrastinating will do–could even make sickness occur.
We seem to be good at perfecting the art of putting things off.
If I were to ask you today, “Have you looked in a mirror?” I know the answer is, “Yes.”
We won’t even spend a day with ourselves with dirty face, uncombed hair, or smelly clothes.
Certainly we would not go out in public without making sure we are “acceptable” outwardly.
But what about underneath, the hidden things?
Is there something “smelly,” such as bitterness, unforgiveness, even hatred?
Look at the date. Hasn’t that self-pity, complaining, bad attitude passed the expiration date?
There is a “mirror” into which we can look that can be like good sudsy water to help us clean up the inside.
Before it makes sickness occur, or even a slow death by that “nagging” that won’t leave.
“Never put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today.”
