“The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.” Prov 14:1
I think one of the most important things we can do for our families is to allow the Father to search our hearts daily. I must evaluate my actions at His prompting.
Are my choices, my reactions, my interactions with my children building my home or tearing it down?
Are my responses to Mike building our home or tearing it down?
Are my schooling choices building my home or tearing it down?
Are my choices on time-management building my home or tearing it down?
Notice it says the foolish woman TEARS her home down with her OWN hands. We so often take steps to destroy the very thing we desire to build up. It appears that there isn’t a neutral ground….I will either be building my house or tearing it down.
This Super Size Saturday I invite you to take a moment to evaluate your actions and your heart along with me. I know it’s our desire to build a godly legacy in our families. I can have a perfectly organized house of genius’ and still have missed it if I fail to introduce my children to the Lover of their souls. My daily actions in the trenches can work against my heart’s desire. If you find that you’ve been tearing down your house…..I know a solution.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I Jn 1:9.
And then? Begin to do the things the Spirit drops into your heart to do. Ask HIM to show you the best way to repair what you’ve torn down and to begin to walk as a wise woman who builds her home!
