Yesterday, we heard from Mom about how we can imitate God’s delight in beauty by making our own surroundings beautiful. One practical way we can apply this principle is by cleaning and organizing our homes. By clearing away clutter and scrubbing surfaces, we can make our homes pleasant and attractive for our family and guests. This in turn reflects God’s character by creating a beautiful environment for others to delight in. That’s why, with spring in the air, we thought this week would be a great time to encourage us all to do a little spring-cleaning.
Traditionally speaking, spring-cleaning implies a thorough cleaning and organizing of the entire house from top to bottom. (I’m getting tired just thinking about it). But have no fear—I’m not about to suggest anything of the kind. I’m actually partial to an idea featured in a recent Washington Post article, which suggests that we “pick one spot” to clean and de-clutter.
ONE spot—that’s doable, isn’t it? Take a minute to check out this article. We think you’ll be inspired, like we were, to make one area of your home more beautiful. More on spring cleaning tomorrow!
