I have a confession to make. I am TERRIBLE at dealing with leftovers. I have the best intentions of being all frugal and using them up, but nine times out of ten they just sit there until they are too disgusting and it’s a major operation to deal with.

In fact, it is now nearing the end of January and I just this weekend finished clearing out Christmas. Shameful!

Unfortunately, we can make the same mistake with unconfessed sin. We let it sit and fester until it’s a major issue instead of daily going before the Lord and clearing out our hearts.

Let’s make it a point this year to keep our leftovers – and our transgressions – under constant watch. We can keep a small problem from turning into a big mess!
