“Let us draw near with a true heart…and our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrews 10:22. “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:20. Meticulous cleanliness is essential to both mental and physical health. The body is constantly throwing off impurities through the skin. There are millions of pores that can become quickly clogged unless kept clean by bathing often.
When the skin is not able to pass off impurities easily, an additional burden is placed on the other eliminating organs.
When taking a proper bath, the blood is brought to the surface and this improves the circulation. This helps to fortify the body against the cold. The body and the mind are both invigorated. The muscles become more flexible, the mind becomes brighter, and the nerves are soothed.
Neglected and unclean corners of the house will tend to make impure and neglected corners of the soul. Teach your children that God wants them to have clean bodies, tidy and clean clothes. This will help keep the thoughts pure and sweet. God was particular about the Israelites cherishing habits of cleanliness and God wants the same for you today. Heaven is pure and holy and those seeking habitation there are to have purity both inward and outward.
