Home Week Day 3

In the midst of all the beautiful photos - go take a look at the reality of our life that I posted on Instagram last week! Ok, now don't you feel better about your home?! Good, me too.

Proverbs 24:3-4, "By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures."

I came across this on my first day of Home Week as I was reading the Proverb of the day {July 24 = Proverbs 24}

As I took my morning walk and later in the day as I sat in the hospital waiting room while Samuel had his eye surgery, I started to process each piece of these verses.

Today, let's look at the first part:

How is a house built with wisdom?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this as well - but here are a few things that came to my mind:

- it means I am full of God's Word, letting it dwell in me, being rich in God's Word and spending quality time with Him

- having routines and systems in place to bring peace to our family

- have strength and dignity - live in confidence and boldness; with God's strength be in control of my home - act with courage, not fear and overwhelm {Joshua 1:9}

- my home is a place that honors God's Word

- wisdom {which I think is both knowing and doing what I know I should according to His Word} is the foundation of a home built for God's glory

- when the foundation is wisdom: the house is built by God's grace and for His glory

- when the foundation is wisdom: it means God is the builder!

For your quiet time reflection, consider printing this out and spending some time working through the questions.
