Wisdom at your fingertips

Ephesians 5:15-16 tells us to "Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil."

This scripture speaks sweetly to me as to how I should be living out my days. I know the Lord has called me to serve my family daily. Serve can mean so many things and be so many different hats to wear.

But, when the Word says to 'make the best use of the time' it doesn't mean to just let your days happen and try and deal with the result. We shouldn't be in a reactive state all day long. I'm learning this more and more the bigger our family gets and the older our children get. I still have so far to go.

If you are like me, you are always looking for ways to improve your 'serve' in your home. You are always looking for ways to make your life a little less chaotic and a lot more organized so that you can spend time on what really matters.

My favorite sister-in-law, Heather Hendrick, is doing a series on her blog that will address anything and everything on the nuts and bolts of running a house effectively. Many women from our church are offering wisdom and insight to various issues such as laundry, organizing, toy control, time management, and the list goes on.

I feel it is worthy to address and so that is the reason for this post. I've already gained wonderful insight into the area of laundry. I love the body of Christ and gaining wisdom from women who have been there, done that, and bought a t-shirt.
