Worn Out or Washed Up

Cotton or polyester/cotton blend? Which do you prefer in handkerchieves? Cotton ones can be bleached and are soft and absorbent. Blended ones don’t need ironing and are lighter. Cotton wears out after hard use. Blended loose brightness and the cotton aspect washes out after many washings leaving only a polyester cloth that won’t absorb snot. Some Christians are like that. Some look worn out from overuse. Some look washed out after having been cleansed from sin so many times they are of no earthly use. Both types become useless. Oh my, where’s the Kleenex?

John 5:14 (NASB)
“Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said unto him, ‘Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.'”
