I love taking care of my home. But one thing I really do not like to do is clean the top of my stove! Because this is something I don’t like to do, I put off cleaning it. Then it gets dirtier and dirtier and becomes even more difficult to clean.

Recently I decided that I needed to do a better job of keeping my stove top clean. So every night when I am washing the dinner dishes, I take a couple of minutes and clean away the dirt. I learned that if I do it every day, my stove always looks so much cleaner.

Our lives are the same way. If we ignore the sin in our lives, we can become weak and be far away from God. So every day we need to think about our lives and search out areas of sin. Then we need to ask God to forgive us and to help us avoid doing those things again.

In verse 7 of our Bible Reading, David said to God, “Remove my sin and make me pure. Wash me until I am whiter than snow!” Be like David. Talk to God and ask Him to make you clean and pure.
