slop gets in my eyes

Tuesday April 28th, 1 John 3: 6 No one who lives deeply in Christ makes a practice of sin. None of those who do practice sin have taken a good look at Christ. They've got him all backwards. Sin is not based on a list of do’s and don’ts, it is that which separates us from God. It may or may not include the ten commandments but the ten commandments surely does not include all the ways we manage to separate ourselves from God. When we find ourselves separated, as did the prodigal son at the pig trough, know that God is waiting right there for us, eyes searching the horizon waiting for some sign of return. The pig troughs of life do not separate us from the love of God, that love is always there. It is just that all that slop makes it hard for Us to see. The slop gets in our eyes, clouds our vision, dulls our senses, hampers our ability to see the beauty of God that surrounds us. Rest assured, even standing in the middle of that slop, stinking to high heaven, God is right there with us telling us we are loved and calling us home. It’s called grace.
