Here’s a great quote from last week’s lesson out of Priscilla Shirer’s study called “Breathe” regarding clutter.
“The Sabbath principle is not limited to our calendars and schedules. It also applies to the spaces in which we live, work and play. Our tendency toward too-full lives often expresses itself most tangibly in our over-crowded closets, unmanageable table surfaces and cluttered desks as we cram them full of far more than we need. Even our children fall prey to the chaos of overcrowded living as their toy boxes and bookshelves overflow with more than they could ever manage. In the meantime they sit, chin in hand, complaining of their boredom.”
I have been working on this idea of clutter in my house now for some time. It may not actually be too noticeable to my family YET. But one day it will!
