Call It Like It Is

We humans use fancy names for some not-so-nice things. For instance, the excrement of a worm is called a worm casting, while a bear exudes scat. Deer give off fewmets, foxes pass bilitts, and otters, spraints. While dogs release scumber, we call cattle manure offings and bat droppings guano.

Paul called it all dung.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, (Philippians 3:8, KJV)

Sin is anything that separates us from God. We can call it anything we like, but that doesn’t change what it is.

Prayer –Lord, show us what dung we cling to, help us to let it go and lead us to follow you 100%. Amen.
