To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Rust stains, grass stains, blood stains, chocolate stains. ARGH! Those stains are real nightmares in the laundry room. They don't just leave a stain on the fabric's surface, but they also leave a residue that infiltrates the fibers of our clothes. Evil is that way with our souls. We must not kid ourselves. Evil corrupts and leaves a residue that corrupts everything it touches and permeates — including the hearts of otherwise decent people. That's why we are urged to stay far away from evil and avoid its very appearance. That's also why Jesus died: not only to overcome the evil one but also to clean away the stain and purify our hearts from all of its residues.

My Prayer...

Father, guard my path and give me good Christian friends who will help guard my life from evil. In addition, dear Father, please help me as I seek to share Christ's cleansing and liberating power with those around me who are caught in evil's destructive and deceptive grasp. In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
