“…All of these are issues that could, should, and need to be addressed on an on-going, everyday basis; NOT just when we think about it; NOT just when we get in a bind; NOT just when the going gets tough….”

OK…it’s clean-up time.  What?  So what’s to clean up…you say.  Here’s a few things to think about… for starters.   Did you make your bed this morning; or leave it up to someone else, or do you just never make it up?  Did you clean off the little table next to your easy-chair last night before going to bed?  Did you pick up your clothes before leaving the house this morning?  Did you clean up the kitchen this morning before leaving to go to school or work?  Did you fold the clothes in the clothes dryer before going to bed last night.  Did you take out the garbage this morning before leaving?  Did you make sure the kids got their homework assignments completed last night before they went to bed?  Did you finish that important project at work before leaving Friday afternoon, as your boss specifically asked you to do?  Did you read your Sunday school assignment before going to Sunday school this past week?  Did you clean-out the garage as requested to do, several times?  Have you reset the alarm clock for Day-light savings’ time?  Did you make all the assignments to your staff before going on vacation?  Have you “cleaned up your spiritual life” recently?  Have you made amends and reconciled differences with those, as appropriate?  Have you taken care of your physical health?  Have you treated people as you would like to be treated?  Have cared for those less fortunate?  Have you made peace with your Maker?  Have you cleaned the top of the refrigerator?  All of these are issues that could, should, and need to be addressed on an on-going, everyday basis; NOT just when we think about it; NOT just when we get in a bind; NOT just when the going gets tough.  So, you see, the process of “cleaning-up” involves every aspect of our life…not just the chores around the housePhilippians 4:8-9 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.  Romans 12:6-8 – Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness   Blessings…cjlb…8/5/14
