An attitude of gratitude makes housework easier.
I’m not kidding. I proved it today.
There were floors to dust mop, toilets to clean, sinks, countertops, dishes to wash, laundry, cooking – you know those endless tasks. Endless because we do them over and over again. And we can complain about it – a lot.
Did not The LORD tell us whatever we put our hands to do, to do it for Him?
10 Whatever task comes your way to do, do it with all your strength; because in Sh’ol, where you will go, there is neither working nor planning, neither knowledge nor wisdom. source
23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. source
Hey now, we can dust mop floors, clean counters, and all that other stuff already listed with a thankful heart.
Giving thanks that we can fellowship with JESUS while doing these things AND we can give thanks that we have floors and a roof and people on those floors, beneath that roof that we love.
AND we can train our children in the process (because yes they need to be taught to clean too). We can give praise out loud to our Gracious LORD as we work alongside those little ones – helping them with toys and clothes and whatever tasks they are ready to learn. It will take holy practice for them and us!
Believe it or not, Scripture does not say: cleanliness is next to godliness. However, if we look around at Creation we can easily see that our Creator is The GOD of orderliness, tidiness, etc.
I really expect Heaven is beautiful, clean, and tidy.
I think I best practice till I get there! 🙂
