Hygiene is the science of supplementing our health through cleanliness, proper conduct, and habits that help to keep our bodies free of germs. We all want to be healthy, so this is a very important science to learn. There is “community hygiene,” which involves keeping communities or groups of people healthy. There is “personal hygiene,” which is the science of keeping ourselves healthy. This skill is all about personal hygiene.
There is an old adage that says, “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” When people say this, they mean that God, Who is perfect, Who allows no sin (spiritual dirt) in Heaven, would probably not permit Heaven to be dirty or messy either. In fact, the Bible describes our future heavenly garments to be spotless, shining white robes.
God knows that sin can dirty our spiritual lives, and make us sick Christians. God also knows that dirt, germs, bacteria, and viruses can make us sick physically. It is important to learn how to be physically clean so that we might be as healthy as possible.
