"Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person; but the things that come out from within are what defile." Mark 7:15
How can I change the world by consciously choosing my thoughts while I wash my hands?
Dear Lord, bless me with a clean heart. May my actions speak kindness and love to everyone I meet each day. Wash away my iniquities, and let my hands be an instrument of Your peace in the world. Amen.
