Throwing Garbage Away!

Once a week a truck moves slowly down our street, pausing at every house. Full and sometimes overflowing garbage containers are picked up, emptied into the truck and returned to each house. During the next week as the rubbish accumulates and the odor increases, we became eager for the return of the garbage truck.

More repulsive than this is the personnal trash that accumulates inside our hearts and minds. Some of our garbage-----hatred, self-centeredness, bitterness, lust-----is obviously foul. But even what looks like good deeds or upright behaviour can reek like garbage if contaminated by our selfish pride.

The Bible called these garbage sins. The thing that blocks or hide the face of Almighty from us. But God made a way for us. He even outlined His system disposal of our garbage. "If we confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1Jonh 1:9)

Thank God!! His sin disposal is available everyday and everywhere,not just in church on Sunday. We need not fear revealing it to HIm, for He already knows them.

**Written by J.E. Yoder**

I understand He wants to get rid of our garbage, let us let Him.

Have a blessed day!!

Verse-Meal
Proverbs 28:13
He who coceals his sin does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.

tama yan. kaya pag may bulok na kamatis at isinama mo sa magaganda nabubulok na rin. kaya itapon na ang mga bulok na kamatis. and stay away from rotten fruits kasi kahit na good fruits ka at naisama ka dito pati ikaw mahahawaan ng kanyang kabulukan. baka hindi na rin mabili o makain pagdating ng araw ang prutas na napasama.tapon na mga basura. iwaksi ang mali pulutin ang tama.

Pastor Flex! bagay ah! heheheh...oo nga minsan ang dami dapat itapon but people have this habit of holding on to things na di dapat. Yung basurang hinahakot ng basurero, madali lang itapon. But not so with emotional garbage or the sins that you are referring to. It takes a lot of effort and commitment to do so kasi andyan lagi ang temptations
