By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
I shared before my prayer for our home … to create space for people, for relationships.
These verses from Proverbs 24 invite us to understand what makes the foundation of Christ-centered home
- Wisdom: the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise.
- Understanding: the ability to understand something; comprehension
- Knowledge: awareness or familiarity gained by experience of a fact or situation
Wisdom comes from the Lord and is the key to building a home grounded in Him and His purposes and truth.
As we grow in wisdom, we gain understanding … the recognition of how He works in and through us for His glory. This understanding establishes our homes as places where He is welcomed and made known.
And finally, as we experience His work in our lives and commit to daily walking with Him, the knowledge we have of His character provides us with the model of extending His grace and kindness to all who enter our homes and our lives.
Lord, our prayer today and always is that our home will be filled with wisdom and understanding. May we walk in the knowledge of You and Your love for others. Make our home a place where grace abounds and the riches of Your presences is evident to all. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
