Wear Clean Underwear

Many of us heard from our well-meaning moms. The great  phrase “always wear clean underwear”  as funny as this has sounds to me, this was told by mothers across the board with love and out of I’m sure embarrassment if their children were caught with dirty ragged underpants on their way to the hospital or in some emergency.

I have worked in various parts of the hospital but my favorite has and always will be the emergency room. I like the “when it rains it pours” kind of work. The not knowing what the day/night will be like. Thinking on my feet is one of my strengths so maybe that’s why I like that department best or perhaps it is the adrenaline rush, who knows but I would see people on their worst day and sometimes it turned out to be their last. I know that they were not thinking if only I had changed and wore my best underwear.

I also know that the person coming in on the gurney with blood coming out from a gunshot wound did not tell us to stop all life saving efforts so they could go get cleaned up first.

This might sound funny and strange to think of people telling the staff to hold off on helping them until they are clean and wearing their best out fit but that is exactly what we do.

Yes, we as humans are funny. We have a God that says He loves us right where we are but for some reason we think we need to clean up our life before allowing God in, or we think we have made to much of a mess. We have made to many mistakes or have committed to big of a sin to be loved my Him.

I am so amazed and humbled by Gods love for us. He comes to us in the messiest of our lives, saves us and then helps clean us up.

Romans 5:8

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

  1. Again you are absolutely right. We worry about how messy we’ve been instead of how much God loves us. Good blog
