Why do my dogs think they need to roll in manure or decaying animal carcass? What can they be thinking? Is there something therapeutic in the oils of a decaying animal? I don’t have a good answer.
But neither do I have an answer for why I “roll in the stink” of my own sinful nature. Just when I think I have moved on, I repeat the same mistakes of the past and allow them to stink up the present. It’s amazing to think that the stink of my errors are wiped clean and removed by a gracious and forgiving God.
Colossians 2:14 “Think of it! All sins are forgiven, the slate wiped clean, the old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross.”
