Proverbs 20:9 -- On Spiritual Showers

"Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?"
Proverbs 20:9

This is a good question, and I was thinking that we take showers fairly frequently so that we don't stink or feel grimy, but that we ignore the spiritual stink and grime too often.  We allow sin to make us unclean, and we can let it go, sometimes for years, and become used to it, or even wallow in the filthiness of it.  And then something happens that causes us to look at ourselves a different way, and we realize how sullied we are, and wonder if there is any way to be clean again after so long.  And there is.  There always is, with God, who gives us the opportunity to repent and become clean and pure again.  Even better of course, if we don't let it get that bad, and we repent a lot more frequently. :)
Today, let's answer this question for ourselves.  Let's be the people that can say this.  Even if it takes time and effort, let's get there... and then let's  work with God, and keep it up, so that we never go that long without a spiritual shower again. :)
