by June Fuentes of A Wise Woman Builds Her Home – Cultivating a Rich Christian Home
Editor’s note: While I will agree that super busyness is not a good thing for most folks, it has nothing to do with if you should be staying home submitting to your husband and homeschooling your children. Busyness is sometimes an excuse to avoid facing up to the real tough issues of life for many women and men. It’s a bellwether mark of pressure, guilt and legalism in many Quiverfull churches that leadership puts on followers.
Does busyness equal martydom??? There would often be boasting of neglected house duties and full schedules that lie ahead. I have to be honest that I had participated in some of this, and by Gods grace He has shown me His way.
The rich full life that can consist only in a Christian home is available to me and everyone else with Christ as its center. As a Christian home we should be the role models to this perishing world and NOT imitate it. The world fills its time with empty pursuits and busyness to fill the void that only Christ can fill. Our homes should be the model of the beauty, rest and joy which radiates from our
Saviour!!!! What is your home radiating today? Believe me, it matters to Christ.
A haven for the weary, a hospital for those in need of nursing. Open arms to those without family. A place of comfort, blessing and peace.
Every need is met here, whether it be a meal, a smile, or a prayer. A place that reflects Christs heart. A warm loving environment that cannot be found anywhere else. A place people are drawn to knowing
their souls will be refreshed. Does this sound like our homes? Can we create this type of environment while we are on the go? God has shown me all the ministry that can be poured out of my own home and that it can be overflowing!
