Clean Hands

December 26, 2012

It seems that wherever you go these days, you see signs encouraging people to wash their hands. With the constant threat of germs and viruses spreading disease throughout the general public, health officials continually remind us that unwashed hands form the single greatest agent for the spread of germs. So, in addition to the signs calling for vigilant hand- washing, public places will often provide hand sanitizers to help take care of germs and bacteria.

David also spoke of the importance of “clean hands,” but for a dramatically different reason. He said that clean hands are one key to being able to enter into God’s presence for worship: “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place?” he asked. And the answer? “He who has clean hands and a pure heart” (Ps. 24:3-4). Here “clean hands” is not a reference to personal hygiene but a metaphor for our spiritual condition—being cleansed from sin (1 John 1:9). It speaks of a life committed to what is right and godly—enabling us to stand blameless before our Lord in the privilege of worship.

As His life is lived out in our lives, He can help us to do what’s right so that our hands are clean and our hearts are ready to give worship to our great God.

Worship, praise, and adoration,
All are due to Jesus’ name.
Freely give your heart’s devotion,
Constantly His love proclaim. —Anon.
The road to worship begins with gratefulness
for the cleansing of God.

Read: Psalm 24

Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart. —Psalm 24:3-4
Bible in a Year:
Revelation 1-3

You love every part of the holidays, down to the candy canes and stockings. And you're goofy enough to put a Christmas tree ornament on your tree!
What Christmas Ornament Are You?

I don't have any ornaments on my tree...just lights.

When I was living in Seattle, this group made its only West Coast appearance in Vancouver, BC. I drove up and spent the night just to hear them. It was worth it.

Hi Kathy. I’m a snowman. “Friendly and fun, you enjoy bringing holiday cheer to everyone you know!”

Getting ready for 10-15” of snow here in central Indiana tomorrow. Probably not going to work. Grateful it didn’t come today so we could go visit family.

The quiz says i am a “Snowman”. Well, I AM about 35% MiQ’Maw and Inuit.

We live in houses MADE of snow.

Inuit Joke:

What is the First thing we teach our children?

“Don’t eat the yellow snow”.

Seriously? A Snowman?
I moved to Florida to AVOID that.

I really DID get into big trouble in Baltimore once though.

That is a long story, probably unsuitable for the canteen. LOL

But it involved pushing a dead motorcycle 5 miles along I95 .

Good evening, henkster....we’ve had gentle snow for most of the afternoon...maybe 3” so far.

10-15” is gonna take some serious snow blowing (or shoveling)....be careful!

If you stand still too long you could really be a snowman.

Merry Christmas!!

The interior coating of the gas tank had flaked off and clogged the carburetor. But that wasn’t the HALF of it!

You can say that again. I had to leave my bike behind, and come back for it with a pick up truck, some mean looking bikers, and a GUN.

But I got it back.

I listened to the Baltimore Consort's "Bright Day Star" disk, which is something I do every Christmas. Then I put on the entire "Messiah", the same version by Christopher Hogwood that I posted at the Canteen.

I cooked up some pasta with Italian sausage in the red sauce that takes 90 minutes to cook. It's good to get back to your roots. Yum!

Guns can be handy in cities like that. Fortunately, in the little coastal Georgia fishing village to which I have retired, weapons aren’t necessary. Everybody watches out for everybody else.

Crash in the kitchen....a plate crashed to the floor. I got there just in time to keep my Dad from crashing with it. Whew! I think his slipper got stuck and didn’t turn with him. I grabbed one of his arms and he grabbed the counter. All is well.

We’ve had about 3 inches so far. It’s barely coming down at all now. I shoveled the driveway once...I’ll check it later.
