Reflex or Reflection

At the risk of seeming indelicate, I think I learned something while cleaning up after my dog this morning.  He did his daily dump, and I got out my little bag to clean up.  I had to physically move him away, as he was kicking the rocks with his back feet in an effort to cover his mess.  He did this even after I moved him and put the pile in the bag.  I think most of us are that way.  When we make a mess, our initial reflex is to do whatever is necessary to cover it up.  Unfortunately, this will not make the mess go away.  As a Christian I have the privilege of exposing my mess to the light and letting the Father pick it up.
