Going to the Dentist reminds me a lot of standing before God on judgment day….although it’s a much smaller scale. The Dentist can see everything that is going on in your mouth and tell you where your difficult spots are. The big difference comes, when the dentist finds a cavity. On Judgment day if we have a relationship with Jesus, he will cover everything that would otherwise send us to Hell. However, in the Dentist’s office Jesus probably won’t step in and cover it for us like he does our sins….because sins and cavities are very different. Jesus could instantly heal cavities if he wanted to, but they don’t tend to have an effect on where you end up afterward. All the same, it’s good to keep your teeth as clean as you can.
