Over the holidays my laundry piled up! I had clean laundry waiting to be folded and dirty laundry waiting to be washed. My laundry room was a mess! I was dreading it! After I had made it my mission to get it done, I realized that what I was dreading wasn’t so bad. Not only was it easy, it took me no time to tidy it up. I’ve decided to start thinking of my soiled laundry as sin, and try to maintain it daily so that it doesn’t get out of control. It’s so easy to repent our shortcomings, so why are we reluctant to confess it? Maybe it’s because you don’t want to clear things up with the one you sinned against, or that you forget about it. Whatever your reason, stop dreading it and just do it. Confession not only keeps your laundry clean, but it preserves your heart. Wash your laundry and and tidy up your laundry room! You’ll feel so much better.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
