Is It Clean Enough?
“O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.” Matthew 14:31-32
A man was in the back bedroom of his home getting dressed while his wife was in the living room talking to a friend. He called out to his wife, “Darling, is this shirt clean enough for me to wear?”
Without hesitation, she said, “No.”
He said, “How did you know it wasn’t clean enough to wear? You didn’t even come back to look at it.”
She said, “If you had to ask, it wasn’t clean enough!”
When it comes to the question of whether you should do something or not, if it’s doubtful, it’s dirty. Unfortunately, most of us don’t give God the benefit of the doubt. We just go ahead and do it.
Are you in doubt about something today? If you have even the smallest doubt in your heart that it might be sin or lead to sin, be strong and choose to say “No.” He will be your peace.
