I saw a cute video the other day of some young children who have spent most of their lives living in the world of COVID-19. These toddlers were filmed walking up to anything that looked like a small box. Then they would put their hand, palm up, at the bottom of the box. Then they would walk away rubbing their hands together. They were pretending to be sanitizing their hands! Why should we be surprised to see them do this when we consider the world they have lived in most of their lives? While they don’t understand the full implications, they live in a world where germs are nasty and everyone must take careful precautions.
We need to understand that we live in a world where spiritual sickness abounds, and we need to take the proper precautions to avoid the consequences of sin. The only way to be “sanitized” from our sins is to trust Jesus for the cleansing that only he can provide.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”—John 14:6.
