For your consideration….

We have been given another analogy for today’s message. We are asked to consider muddy shoes. Do you want or allow muddy shoes into your house? Of course, we do not want the mud and dirt in our house. We don’t want to have to clean up the mess.

Each and every day through from various sources we gather “mud.” We gather information, feelings, opinions, clutter, attitudes, moods etc. that are not good for us. They are eat away at our spirit. They cloud our spirit and judgment. They minimize us versus help us grow.

We are reminded that like mud on our shoes, we need to leave all that negativity at our door. We should not let it in. And if by chance it gets in, we need to clean up the mess and dump it back out. We need to keep our spirit, our authentic self clean.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Leave the “mud” at the door.

What made me smile yesterday…..

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
