TEST OF INSANITY in the 1800’s: Placed in a room with a sink and a mop & bucket. Sink is stopped up and the water is turned on. Water begins to overflow unto the floor.

An insane person will react by grabbing the mop and feverishly working to clean the water from the floor while it continues to pour over the sides of the sink.

Sane person will go and turn off the water and then begin to clean the floor.

Many today are working feverishly to please and satisfy God while never dealing with the root issue which is our sin nature. They work so hard and yet never acknowledge that sin continues to pour out of their lives from all sides.
