Sweeping things under the rug can make quite a mess out of things.
Things get trapped there. Eventually those things become a part of the rug if left to long. The truth about dirt, grime, and crime all get swept away, out of sight and out of mind.
Every so often, the rug has to be taken out and beaten clean.
Moral of the story: Deal with your issues, even it takes a box of tissues, but don’t keep sweeping it under the rug.
“Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”
Jesus concerning offense. Matt. 18:18
