Yesterday I was washing dishes after the midday meal. When finishing, there were little particles of food left in the sink. It was easier to flush them down the drain than pick themthrow them in the dustbin. Rather cumbersomeslimy,not so pleasant a sight. Then a thought crossed my mind. That if I let them go down the drain, they would one day probably cause a blockage. Then when pumping the sink to take care of the blockage, the very same,many other particles too, would rise up….what a sightsmell! And I would need to remove them nevertheless,oh how I wouldn’t want anyone else to see them! It’s a dirty sight, a shame,even I wouldn’t want to look at it.
Just like sin in our lives,other little “habits”“mistakes.” We can choose to get rid of them at the beginning,though rather unpleasant, that’s more bearable than having them recur in bulkuglinessstench,not wanting to see the mess ourselves,trying to hide from others as well. Eew, huh?
