Chicken broth or meat drippings are nice when hot. Later, after there has been time for cooling, fats rise to the surface. The results are far from appealing! The cook skims it off the top, peeling away a thin layer revealing what is beneath. Do you remember the days of home milk delivery? Milk arrived at your door step in glass bottles. Cream would be at the top; and was enjoyed in coffee or tea and used for whipping.
Our lives are much the same. Eventually all that is within us will work its way to the surface. If it is love, all will be blessed, skimming off what they need to add flavor to their lives. I'm sorry to say often feelings of anger or selfishness rise to the top. Hopefully, we can skim them off with confession before our sin hurts others. "But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man (Matthew 15:18 NKJ)." Skim it off; if it's good spread it around! If it is bad dispose of it promptly!
