TODAY’S READING

1 John 1:5-10

KEY VERSE: If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9 (NRSV)

MESSAGE

It is amazing and annoying how dust can creep into places you don’t expect. Recently my husband and I have been doing some home renovations. I was determined that I would protect all our furniture and made sure I had enough plastic to cover everything.

I didn’t think about the insides of the kitchen cupboards, though. I figured the contents of the cupboards were safe since they were all behind doors. But renovation dust managed to creep into the crevices. It wasn’t until cleanup time that I noticed the thin layer of dust that had covered everything!

As I cleaned out my cupboards, I thought about how it wouldn’t hurt to give myself a dusting off too. Sin can creep in just like dust.

Prayer and confession are good ways to clean away the dust in my life. It was good to stop and think about how God blesses me every day with mercy and grace.

 

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Each day God gives me abundant mercy and grace.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Gracious God, remind us always of how you created and love us. Help us tidy up areas of our lives that don’t bring you glory so we can show our gratitude to you. Amen.
