Spring is a great time to remodel. A fresh coat of paint on the walls feels so clean and original. Amazing how it can renew a room, making it appear brand new. But, if you don’t get all of the old wallpaper off first, eventually old scars could start to show through.
It’s the same thing if we promise ourselves to make changes, but don’t confess our sins and repent: eventually our fresh new veneer will crack and our sins could raise their ugly heads. Just like a nail-pop. Take care of the old, worn layers underneath your soul.
