The Parable of the Leaky Faucet
I’m sure that we’ve all experienced the annoyance of a leaky faucet. It is a simple fix, but if we let it go, it just gets more and more annoying each day. We hear it while we’re lying in bed trying to sleep and it keeps us up. We’re trying to read a favorite book and it breaks our concentration. We are talking on the phone and are unable to concentrate on our conversation because of the distracting leak!
Our sins are the leaky faucets of our spirits. They can be easy to fix, but if we let them go, they become more and more troublesome each day. We will think about them while trying to sleep at night, while trying to relax and while working with others. If we let them go too long, it is too late and we are stuck with our sins. I pray that we will take the time each day to truly repent of our sins so that we can go about our lives with a clear mind and a clear conscious.
