I read in Jesus in Blue Jeans about receiving a clean plate every day. Each day we must begin with a clean plate, washed clean of dirt, crust, filth—sin. Jesus said “If I do not wash you, you have no part in me.” The cleansing power of forgiveness like a setting on your dishwasher.
Each night become clean of grudges and resentments. We ought to give family, friends, coworkers a new plate daily. (Even our dogs when they pee in our rooms! They are God’s creatures too!) What motivation to have a clean plate, a fresh start to each and every day.
