So many days we are focused on our house. Is it clean? Is it organized? There is even a show about people whose houses get so cluttered they call in the experts to fix it. It is fun to watch in a weird sort of way.
Jesus talked a lot about how what really matters is what is in us. Peter heard it first hand. We should focus on cleaning up “our inner life”. Make a clean sweep. Call in the expert, Jesus. Get rid of all the muck of pretense and hurtful conversations.
God’s goal for us is clear. No malice. No envy. No pretense.
So clean house! Make a clean sweep of malice and pretense, envy and hurtful talk. 1 Peter 2:1
