Planting The Truth

Dear God,

Today we came from a short family outing. My kids came home without cleaning themselves up. As I "surveyed" them from head to toe, I know that even if I do not actually see the dirt, they are covered with it. Their clothes have it too, and I quickly asked them to remove it and sent them to bathe and clean themselves before anything else.

I thought of the verse for today as my DS and DD cleaned themselves one after the other in the bathroom. I am to cast aside sin as I cast aside their dirty clothing. Then You ask me to receive Your Word with meekness. My children don't always face a bath with meekness, yet they always feel, look, and smell so much better afterward.

I want to kick away those filthy habits and embrace the words You have implanted in me. Lord, please fill me with the words of truth that can save my soul. Amen.

Therefore, get rid of all moral filth
and the evil that is so prevalent
and humbly accept the word planted in you,
which can save you.
James 1:21
