One of the things my pastor says always gets young couples into trouble is trying to have in their house what it took their parents a life time to get. So, those thiings– paintings, figurines, etc that you have no need of but look nice tend to be somethinig couple prioritize. They lead to clutter all along your house– clutter that must be maintained.
The right clutter needs to be displayed, be it whichever holiday you’re currently around. The clutter needs to be dusted and taken care of. Collections continue to be added to until they get unwieldy.
This is where Amy’s advice comes into play. In answering some questions, she gives advice about what her family does in terms of getting more time by having less clutter.
What do you have in your home that is taking time away from what you should be doing for the Lord?
