Dirty mouth

teeth-1652937_960_720A random thought came to me as I was brushing my teeth today.  My morning breath was quickly whisked away by the cleansing action of a little mouthwash and some toothpaste.  Brushing is something we are supposed to do multiple times a day but when we fail to do so our mouths become dirty, our breath, bad, and our teeth susceptible to decay.

I was reminded of how things can spiral downward in our spiritual lives if we don’t take steps to keep our hearts and mind clean.  One of my favorite scriptures deals with the issue of spiritual maintenance.

But if we confess our sins to him, he [God] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9

Check out Natalie Grant’s new song, “Clean,” if you get a chance.  “There’s nothing too dirty that You can’t make worthy. You wash me in mercy, I am clean”
