Because our home is a hub of action and activity, there is an allure to simply piling up the dishes after a meal and letting them wait until the end of the day. That simple act of procrastination, however, makes the work at the end of the day much more involved, doesn’t it? I tend to let the dishes pile up. Everything dries. Things are hard to clean. Slowly and suddenly, a simple necessity of life is now a large project to undertake.

Next time you do the dishes, use them as a reminder of the daily opportunities we have to turn to Jesus and ask for a little bit of soap and water.

Episode 51 of Presently Engaged with Mandy Pallock will support you as you do the dishes.
