Ezekiel 44:23 -- On Seeing the Difference

"And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and the profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean."
Ezekiel 44:23

This chapter is talking about some of the duties of priests, and as I read this particular part I thought that it would be a good thing for us to think about today.  Sometimes we need to review the basics, because we start getting into the complexities of life and we forget.
Can we see, today, the difference between the holy and the profane?  Are we making the distinction between the unclean and the clean in our lives?  Do we notice and avoid the bad things in our lives, or do we just accept them and let them wash over us?  Today, let's work on making a distinction.  Let's not become acclimated to evil.  Again, this isn't about rejecting others at all.  God is all about love, and we should be too.  It is about choosing, for ourselves, what we want inside our heads and part of our lives and perspectives.  Today, let's avoid the questionable conversation, the offensive scene in the book or movie.  Let's not just go along when others are being mocked.  Let's examine our lives as they go along, and let's embrace the holy and reject the profane.  Let's be clean, and thus better able to hear the Lord's promptings, to help others, and to get the Lord's help in our own lives.
