~ Cleanliness—Godliness ~
Bible Quotation? ~ “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”
The Bible Says ~ Cleanliness is certainly an admirable and necessary trait. But that quotation is not from the Bible.
The Significance ~ Certainly physical cleanliness is important for physical health. In similar fashion spiritual cleanliness is important for spiritual health. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7a).
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:8-9).
