One of the things that I do that Melissa has to call me out on every now and then is using the same towel for too long.
I don’t know why, but I hate using a fresh towel.
There’s just something odd about it for me.
And so, I use the same one for a few days (weeks) in a row.
Eventually, the towel begins to stink to the point that Melissa is forced to tell me I have to wash it.
I don’t know what it is, but I bet you have a habit kinda like this.
Something that you think, “That’s GROSS!” when you hear that someone else does it, but it doesn’t seem that bad because you’re the one doing it.
That’s kinda the way we think about our sins.
If I’m doing it, it’s not that bad…
At least I’m not doing ____ like ____.
When we compare ourselves with others, we’ll always be able to find someone that seems worse than us.
When we compare ourselves to God, that towel suddently smells worse… His towels are fresh and white.
This is a call for us to all work on ourselves.
If we all do that, we won’t have time to call anyone else out on their dirty towel.
