Trash Can

The other day I was working on my computer. On my desktop screen there is a picture of a trash can. When I no longer need a document saved on my computer, I drag it to the trash can. Then it is gone!
This reminded me that I have some trash in my heart. Verse 8 of our Bible Reading says, “If we say that we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” I know that I have sin in my life, and God knows, too.
Sin makes me dirty. God wants me to be clean and holy. I know sin is bad and that I need to depend on God to remove it from my life. That’s why I am so glad God forgives me. Verse 9 assures me of God’s promise to forgive me. I have memorized that verse, and I repeat it every day.
Take time today to think about the sin in your life. Ask God to forgive those sins and help you live closer to Him.
