Thank you for these wonderful ideas, which I will certainly put into practice. I really like the dishwashing analogy! It is very easy to “brand” people with certain attitudes or remember bad memories in connection with someone, but as the Bible says, God’s “compassions fail not. They are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22, 23), so we also need to be mercifully forgiving of past events and words and wash our thoughts clean of any thought that would cover the purity and truth of our being and that of others.
