Getting Rid Of Junk

Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2

How many of you reading this have junk and clutter you know you need to get rid of? Sometimes too much sentimental stuff can end up weighing us down and making our homes look like piles of trash. God gave us the money to buy or rent places to live and we are to be good stewards of our possessions. 

Besides physical clutter in our lives there often can be non spiritual clutter weighing us down and keeping us from being closer to God. Living in the past. Not forgiving self for something God has forgotten. Hanging on to bad habits that take you away from things of the Lord such as too much alcohol, drugs,  pornography, trashy movies, bad reading material, recreation on Sunday in lieu of attending a worship service, office gossip and backbiting. Add to the list. 

Start today to rid yourselves of things in your life that separate you from God or cause you to truly not give Him first place in your life. Allot of worldly clutter can weigh you down and try to control your life. Don't let it. 

PRAYER: I choose to declutter my 'spiritual closet' and make an effort daily to break bad habits and form new ones that draw me closer to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. Becky; This is so true. We have a lot of 'stuff' both physical and spiritual we all need to deal with.
