Genesis 35 - Key

v2

Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that [were] with him, Put away the strange gods that [are] among you, and be clean, and change your garments:

I think Jacob wanted his household to recommit themselves to the Lord. He said, Put away the strange gods that [are] among you, and be clean... We should do the same thing.

A while ago I saw the value of regularly recommitting my life to the Lord. We should give him everything we are, everything we have, and everything we do. We should think about whether He wants us to have and keep the things we have. We should consider every thought and word and action, whether it's what God wants.

Application

v4
And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which [were] in their hand, and [all their] earrings which [were] in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which [was] by Shechem.

I'll consider the things I have, and whether the Lord wants me to get rid any of them.
