“A house is built by wisdom and becomes strong through good sense. Through knowledge its rooms are filled with all sorts of precious riches and valuables.” Proverbs 24:3-4 NLT
Home value is one of those newsworthy items. If you are buying, selling, renting, looking or staying the value of the home has an impact on many of our lives. But beyond the questions of where you live and what it cost, comes the selection of what you place and keep in your home. Whether your tendency leans towards minimalism, hoarding or somewhere in the middle, what is in your home can contribute to how you feel when you are there.
Unlike some other things in life, the selections for what is in our home, usually happens on purpose. We typically get to choose what we allow in our home and what gets removed. Of course, there may be exceptions, but for the most part our home environment is one of our own makings. With wise choices, our houses can gain the intangible value of being a place for us to rest, grow and thrive.
Similarly, what we place in our lives can either add to or detract from the lives we live. Also, similarly we have great control of who and what we allow in our lives. When we choose good things and eliminate those toxic things from the environment of our lives, we are able to increase the value of our lives for the kingdom.
This week choose wisely what you allow into your life and home, and if necessary, consider a little spring cleaning of those things that need to be removed.
