Dust- Omnipresent stuff; people are often surprised by the amount of dust that collects in their houses each day and this despairing phrase is often heard from housewives.."I don't know where all this dust comes from..."
Well, if it's there, you need to sweep and swab, to keep your house clean or inevitably it will cause health issues.
So it is with our spiritual lives. It needs constant cleansing to maintain a healthy relationship with our Creator.
Meditating regularly on God's Word (The Bible), tells us where things have gone awry in our life and confession in prayer helps us in the cleansing.
Bottom line - Sweep and swab (material & spiritual houses) regularly - Good habits pay great dividents on the long run.
