The other night I was cleaning out the sink after I had washed a few dishes. I was using a white dish cloth and went to turn on the garbage disposal to chew up any nasty bits of food and gunk left over. I flipped the switch and watched the water quickly drain down when it occurred to me I hadn’t removed the dish cloth from the sudsy water. I turned off the disposal and felt around…nothing. I then reached just below the rubber disposal lining and pulled out the dish cloth. It was not torn or destroyed. Whew!
Wisdom teaches us that we are to examine our lives and allow that which would pollute our spirits and lives to be washed away. It also instructs us to be mindful, careful not to lose track of or allow to be destroyed those things which help us become and stay clean.
