Are you clean? I remember hearing those words from my mom when I was little and then the inspection began. What was the big deal about behind the ears anyway? Yes mom always now's best. And being clean is a good thing...taking a bath or shower, brushing your teeth and don't forget deodorant. Enough about physical hygiene what about your spiritual hygiene. The Bible makes it pretty clear we are dirty because of sin. Even our best is nasty (Isaiah 64:6). We may look good on the outside but God looks in (I Samuel 16:7). It begins with the blood of Christ that will take away all your spiritual nasty filth. Then daily stay clean by the washing of the "water of the Word of God" (Ephesians 5). So jump in and take a spiritual shower and end 2012 clean!
