A few months ago, I was in Angola with Saving Moses & I forgot my toothpaste, so I bought some Angolan toothpaste & it’s not my favorite. I can appreciate that you might think I should know better than to forget toothpaste, but that’s a conversation for another blog ,)
A few helpful thoughts about tooth brushing:
Halitosis / AKA: bad breath – when some people open their mouths, bad things happen. Nothing sweet comes out in words or smell. So let’s put good things in our heart, so that sweet comes out of our mouth, based on Proverbs 10:11
Furry Teeth: brushing off the plague and residual food helps our smiles be warm rather than unnerving or distracting. And Proverbs 12:14 speaks to the importance of mouth maintenance
Bacteria removal: bad things happen when bacteria builds but & removing it daily from our teeth preserves our ability to continue using our teeth. Proverbs 12:19 helps us appreciate the importance of keeping truth in our mouths 🙂
Preventing enamel & tooth decay: hurtful & destructive words set into motion negative things in our lives, so let’s be mindful of James 3:1-12 to keep our lives overflowing with love & life!!
Feel free to send this to your friends & share it on FB as a helpful reminder about keeping a sweet mouth with life-giving words!
Ever make plans only to see everything hit the fan & splatter in messy chaos? This is why I’m eating spicy pizza at the Los Angeles airport at 10:15am – not exactly what I’d planned for this moment. Nevertheless, the pizza is fantastic & I had a very lovely chat with Giovanni who made my pizza. He’s born & raised in LA but would like to travel & experience a wider cross section of cultures.
Anyways, my point is that in the middle of changing plans & with uncertainly aplenty, let’s be sure that we hold more tightly to God than our plans, trusting that God works all things together for our good, as we stay in love with God & surrendered to His purposes & will 😉
