Dust always surprises me at the worst possible time. I’ve been living with it but didn’t realize it. Honestly, I hadn’t dusted in a while because everything looked okay to me. That’s because I never moved the mantel clock or the corner shelf stuff. I decided that if that dust didn’t bother me than I wouldn’t bother it.
Then the maintenance guy arrived to check out the fireplace for the winter. Of course he had to kneel on the hearth. When he got up…his knees were dusty and a knee size spot gleamed dust free on the hearth. Embarrassing or what!
How long has it been since we did some spiritual dusting? When did we last pour our heart out to God? Are we thinking that if God doesn’t bother us, we won’t bother him? When desperation hits us, we’ll be happy enough to get on our knees. Wouldn’t it be polite to build a good relationship with Him long before we beg for help?

Prayer: Lord, forgive us for not taking time to get to know you. Thank you that you already know us so well, that you forgive us. So, God, while I am here…I’d like to tell you about……….. In Jesus' name. Amen.
