Tuesday’s Treasure Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Object Lesson:  Rotten Potatoes

Recently I had to clean out a bin of potatoes because some had started to rot in the middle.  I knew I kept smelling something, but could not figure out where the smell was coming from.  Oh, the mess and stink while cleaning it out!  I dumped, washed, dried, sorted.  So glad i found them before they got worse.

Have I looked for rotten potatoes in my life?  Is there something stinking but I am not sure what it is?  Am I willing to do a good soul searching and heart cleaning in order to separate the good from the bad?  I need to get the rotten potatoes out of my life before the spoil the good ones!  Oh well, it is only one or two rotten potatoes.  what can it hurt?   Amazing how much one or two rotten potatoes stink!  At first you don’t notice it and then all of a sudden, they smell so bad and all the good potatoes around the rotten potatoes start to spoil.  It all happens so quickly!  Before long there are maggots crawling everywhere!  Then as my life gets “stinkier and stinkier”  it even causes others around me to become stinky and rotten. 

Not only do I need to get the rotten potatoes out of my life, but I need to separate from others who have rotten potatoes in their lives lest they begin to destroy me.  Am I willing to say with the Psalmist,  Psalms 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Remember:  GOD IS HOLY! and therefore

1 Peter 1:16  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

2 Peter 3:11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
