Ephesians 4:31 NLT - "Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior."
"Take the garbage OUT!" How often do we hear those words spoken in households around the world?! Things get used up but there's still containers and other accessories that are not only no longer needed, but they're more than likely dirty and unusable without being recycled. So we get rid of the stuff we no longer need or is simply too dirty to be used again. Get rid of the trash!
How does this relate to our Daily Verse? Our old nature has a lot of stuff that just isn't compatible with our new nature. God has called us to peace not anger; He has called us to reconciliation, not resentment; He has called us to love, not hatred; Any kind of behavior that could offend our God or stifle our Christian growth and walk needs to be cleared out of our lives. That way our hearts can be clean and our lives can be lived to bring glory to our Savior and satisfaction to our souls.
