The Sunday school teacher was checking her students’ knowledge of Proverbs. She asked, “Cleanliness is next to what?” A small boy replied, “Impossible.”
Sometimes cleanliness does seem nearly impossible. Why? Because sin is so strong and never-ending. Once we are cleansed from sin, it comes right back to tempt us again. It is very hard to overcome some sins such as greed, lust, ill will, anger and gossip.
