Reading The Bible Is Like Flossing Your Teeth Daily

 If its not done you can’t get the bad, hidden, slowly destroying junk out of your teeth or mind.

Dentist recommend that flossing is crucial for healthy teeth, gums, and breath.  If you do not-eventually,bacteria will slowly grow and DESTROY your teeth, gums, and breath. It can even travel down to your heart!

Some may say that they brush their teeth daily, even several times through the day.  That is very good, but the Dentist will still reiterate that nothing can take the place of daily flossing.

Some people may feel that isn't it sufficient enough that we go to church every Sunday, assist with mid-week Bible study, watch/listen to Pastors on TV/Internet and attend various church conventions.  It’s a blessing to do all of these things.  However, only spending time studying and  reading your Bible daily will annihilate the hidden bacteria in our minds, body and souls.
You can’t just floss one tooth or the side of your mouth you mostly chew on; you have got to floss all of your teeth to get effective results.  Many Christians just like to read their favorite Bible versus, instead of  going through the whole Bible.  We can't pick and choose what we think is best from God's word.   

There are many countries all over the world where  people do not know about importance of flossing-much less can afford to go to a Dentist.  There are global dental organizations and charities that spread this message through partnerships and dental care programs.  And we have many Christian organizations that spread the message of the Gospel through international partnerships and evangelism.  

Many of us are born again, but our souls, which is made up of our mind, will and emotions can not change if we do not commit PERSONAL time studying Gods word.  Our souls do not transform instantly, it’s a process that takes place over time as our minds are strengthened from the word of God.

We can never attain and enjoy on this earth all the benefits of the blessings that BELONG to us as believers if we do not allow the word to seep through the cracks of our souls.  We can have heaven on earth!
“So GET RID of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls”(James 1.21, Amplified Bible).

Flossing your teeth is an act that needs motivation.  It can be so boring and monotonous.  But your teeth do feel better after it’s done.  Your dental visits are short and sweet;
 and most importantly your teeth remain strong and healthy.
