Moleskin:
If something stinks, FIX IT.
The below podcast details Jocko’s visit to an Iraqi family’s home which had a slit trench for human evacuation in their own kitchen. He was incredulous that someone would simply tolerate such living conditions in the modern age despite other seemingly obvious alternatives.
What things are we tolerating in our homes, jobs, and relationships that stink? We are called to “[b]e perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” – Matthew 5:48. We are also instruments which God uses for His glory in order to sanctify the temporal order and draw people to Christ. Therefore, question assumptions and seek the truth. Be vigilant, courageous, and quick to excise the things, practices, behaviors, or even people from our lives that prevent us from becoming the man God is calling us to be. This is a difficult and never-ending task, but Christ is with us always!
