Spring (Spiritual) Cleaning

It's Spring Cleaning Time!!! We often associate spring cleaning with tidying up and removing items that we don't need nor desire to carry into the next season of our lives. I encourage you to do a thorough SPIRITUAL CLEANSING in this season of your life. Take inventory of relationships, friendships, careers, family members, and circumstances that you encounter on a daily basis and determine are they needs or wants and if their time of access has run its course. Label each person in your life according to the position  and purpose they serve and name them honestly.  Genesis 2:20 says, "So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him." Every person that you have allowed to have access into your life should serve a purpose and position. Who are the cattle, birds, and the beasts in your life? 
(Cattle) friends don't require much from you, they give of themselves freely, easy to maintain relationship with and they are willing to go to the chopping block with or for you. 
(Bird) friends are meek and humble people who don't mind being in the background of your success. They are willing to help you build privately and they are preservers.
(Beast) friends are all about themselves and what you can do to further their agenda. They take from you and are busy bodies who seek to feast off of your work and worth.

As you go forth in your spiritual cleansing, don't take short cuts and do it from a professional-not personal perspective. Good luck to you and remember the secret ingredient to ensuring that you don't miss any spots is prayer-it works every time!!!
