It is time to take a holistic bath to allow the better you to emerge. Therefore, take away the dross covering your beauty and glory. Proverbs 25:4.
✅1. Take away the physical trash. It may be that you are overweight, lose weight. It may be that you have a body or mouth odor — take your bath and brush your teeth frequently; use good body sprays/mouth wash, if needed. It may be that you have other physical infirmities, deal with them.
👉🏾Do not allow any physical dross hinder you from becoming the best you were created to be.
👉🏾Exercise regularly. Eat appropriately. Sleep at the right time and do whatever is needed to make your physical outlook the best.
✅2. Take away the mental trash. This may mean going back to school to get a degree, joining a business to learn new skills, reading books to glean new knowledge or following a mentor to guide you.
👉🏾Sharpen your mind with new information, insight, and ideas. Clean up your mind of stupid things like unproductive thoughts. Take away the mental dross.
✅3. Take away the emotional trash. This includes anger, fear, doubts, envy, jealousy, unforgiveness, and bitterness. You do not forgive others for their sakes, but for your sake. So, forgive.
Will people hurt you – yes. What must you do? Forgive. You need to clear your negative emotions of all to be able to think appropriately. So get the dross out of your emotions.
✅4. Take away the spiritual trash. Are you a real or a fake believer? Are you serving God in spirit and in truth? Are you truthful to yourself? Take away every spiritual dross.
Take away eye services, self-deceit, and lies. Take away every backsliding spirit. Be zealous and passionate in the things of God.
✅5. Take away psychological trash. Take away the spirit of depression, low self-esteem, and suicidal ideation. Take away all those negative thoughts that hinder your progress and advancement. Rather, focus on the great future you see.
✅6. Take away the social trash. Separate yourself from people and things that are not helping you advance appropriately. Separate yourself from behaviour that is hindering your progress – gambling, gaming, alcohol abuse, tobacco, drugs, prostitution, pornography, etc. Take away the social trash.
✅7. Take away the financial trash. Stop wasting all you earn without saving, investing, and or managing with a budget. Stop begging, borrowing, or living off others. Stop every form of dishonesty, lies, and cheating in business.
👉🏾Rather, run your business honestly and righteously. Take away every financial dross. When you take away the trash, the better you will emerge. Therefore,
🎯1. Find out the best way to take away all trash in your life and finances. Proverbs 25:2 _It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter._ There is a way out. Search it out.
🎯2. Manage your ego and avoid deadly pride. Proverbs 25:6. Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men: Respect yourself in meetings, occasions, and programs; and allow others to recognize you.
🎯3. Manage your emotions and anger to avoid shame. Proverbs 25:8. Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof when thy neighbor hath put thee to shame.
🎯4. Mange your words and take away the culture of speaking before thinking. Proverbs 25:11. A word is fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
🎯5. Work and partner with faithful people. Proverbs 25:13. As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters.
👉🏾Confidence in unfaithful people will cause you avoidable pain. Proverbs 25:19. Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
🎯6. Take care of your enemies and distractors with wisdom. Proverbs 25:21. If thine enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink:
As you take away all the trash in your life, expect good news from unimaginable places. Proverbs 25:25. As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
And, ensure that you put boundaries never to return to your vomit. Proverbs 25:28. He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
