“Your business becomes worldwide the minute you leave your front door for school, work, play, church or any other activity, so practice your daily character with Quality God can be proud to display through YOU.” ~ Jon Barnes
The Dirt that you have at home can be publicly seen based on how well you follow God’s Laws and public policy with your personal behavior, thoughts, and work ethic. Your home may look clean on the outside, but there is no love inside your home! You may look clean when you leave your home, both when you open your mouth, what you say and do smell like dog PooP!
Your image is more than the visual perception of yourself, as it is the very core of who you are from the inside out. Try to smell your looks and see your image from a different perspective and you will see what God can smell, standing behind you. Cleaning your image is personal, yet public awareness is par for the course.
Clean it Up
Why walk around all dirty, smelly, broken, disorganized, and irrelevant when you understand how to do good work cleaning up your own show, workplace, function, presentation, and agenda. If your goals are not aligned with God’s Good Goal, then I would buy some Holy Soap to begin the cleanup process to calibrate your motives and thinking, from the heart of your home.
Do you need help smelling and cleaning up your own house to positively affect God’s Public Policy in a good way?

1 Thessalonians 5
The Day of the Lord
5 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you,2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.
23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
25 Brothers and sisters, pray for us. 26 Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss. 27 I charge you before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
