Clogged Filters

Have you ever check/changed the air filters on your car, for you home a/c, a vacuum cleaner, or even your hair dryer?

 

They get gross.

 

Sometimes it’s because it’s been a while.

Sometimes it’s because you’ve been using them a lot.

Sometimes it’s because of conditions. (driving on dirt roads or the trees are pollinating)

 

They are useful when they are new and clean of debris.

 

This is much like the filters we have in our minds.  They protect us and keep us from having to “over think” every situation.  Some are simply instincts and others are ingrained from environments, habits, and capacities.

 

They still need to be changed out because they get clogged with debris (life).

 

Sometimes it’s because it’s been a while.

Sometimes it’s because you’ve been using them a lot.

Sometimes it’s because of conditions.

 

May you begin to better understand what repentance is truly about.

And may you begin to realize when God is calling us to die to ourselves, it isn’t just about our physical life.

 

with humility.
