Today wherever you go there are signs encouraging us to wash our hands. With the continuous threat of germs and viruses spreading disease throughout the public,health officials remind us that unwashed hands form the greatest agent for the transmission of germs. In addition to signs calling for handwashing, public places will often provide hand sanitizers to help take care of bacteria.

In the scriptures David spoke of the importance of "clean hands", however, for a very different reason. He indicated that clean hands are the key to entering into the presence of God for worship.

As God's life is lived out in our lives, He can help us do what is right so our hands are clean and our hearts are prepared to worship Him.
