Before all the girls and boys head back to school wouldn’t it be nice if they left a clean house behind them. I have spent the past week being reminded how important a clean house can be and how great it is when the kids who live in the house help to clean it. If nothing else they understand the work that goes into keeping it clean and may think twice before making a mess!
This got me thinking about what the bible says about how we are to treat our houses:
And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Luke 11:25
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23
So as you are cleaning up your next mess or assigning chores to the little kids, remind them that this is something that God wants them to do also!
