Dirty Dudes

“Dirty Dudes Done Dirt Cheap” reads a sign outside a local laundromat. A mistake of one letter can change a meaning to a startling degree!

All of us, as sinners, could be referred to as “dirty dudes.” BUT, our Savior’s cleansing of us carried a heavy cost for Him. One He was willing to pay. We ought to rejoice daily in the price paid to take away our filthiness. The apostle Peter reminds us in 1 Peter 1:18-19, For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

“Dirty dudes?” Yes. “Done Dirt Cheap?” I think not!
