But, have you ever seen the inside of one of them? DE-sgusting. While visiting my husband’s family, my sister-in-law’s dog decided to go duck hunting. He tore the head off of our daughter’s rubber duckie. I was surprised to see all the green stuff growing in there. I felt like a horrible mom for letting her have that germ filled thing in her bath. The rest of her toys were headed for a bleach bath when we got home.
We’re quite similar to that grinning fellow. We look good on the outside—going to church, helping people, doing all the right things. We’re still disgusting on the inside, filled with sin that will keep growing unless we’re cleansed by the blood of Christ.
So, don’t throw the duckie out with the bathwater, get squeaky clean instead.
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
(Matthew 23:25-27 KJV)
