It is often said that “cleanliness is next to godliness, This signifies that cleanliness is equated to living a life approved of God. The Lord expects us to maintain purity of heart and life. The Bible says, “Be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD” (Isaiah 52:11), emphasizing the importance of cleanliness to God. Our text today says, “Let thy garments be always white.” If your white garment is expected to be consistently kept white, it implies that your life-style must be pure, both physically and spiritually.
Your body, the clothes you wear, the food you eat, and your environment must be kept clean. Keep your surroundings clean. Wash your clothes and under-wears regularly. Maintain personal hygiene by washing your mouth, morning and night. Cut your nails, and keep your hair neat. Keep your rooms clean and tidy. Wash your kitchen wares and maintain proper food hygiene. These practices will help promote your health and prevent diseases. Most importantly, keep your heart clean for the Lord, and make yourself worthy of eternal life.
CHALLENGE: Without holiness ye cannot see God.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to be pure within and without.
