Grime builds up on our hearts the way it builds up on our furniture. We need to call God in to create clean hearts for us.

Jennifer Prive, the past president of our Ladies’ Guild cleans my condo once a month. With my doing the normal picking up and washing I never notice the place getting dirty; but Jennifer did her strong one-over here yesterday, and I sure can notice the place being clean. How marvelous it is to get a reflection off the marble sink!
I suppose it is the same with ourselves. We don’t notice the grime taking over our hearts. Jennifer is grand for a chat and a scrub, but today’s 51st Psalm calls in God to do a real clean-up of our inner being. Confident that God will get us on to the right program, we plead,
A clean heart create for me, O God, and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
