DAILY DEVO...have you washed up?

Seems like everyone is sick. Sneezing. Coughing. Runny nose. Sore throat. Last week, a local doctor said he had treated 44 cases of strep!

My husband just told me that without a doubt, we are getting the flu shot this year. The flu is said to hit hard.

Shots and vaccinations are good. But do you know what is good too...washing your hands! A regular habit of washing your hands ...can protect you from things like the flu or the common cold.

Not only is it good to wash our hands physically, but spiritually as well. James tells us how to wash our hands spiritually...

"So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your heart's, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world." (James 4:7-10)

What we need today is just a good washing...just like washing our hands will guard us from sickness, washing our heart on a regular basis will guard us from spiritual defeat.

? for today...have you washed the germs off yet today?

Don't let them reside on your hands or in your heart.
