Matthew 7:24-27, "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
When we bought our home, all the floors needed to be ripped out and re-done. So, I thought how neat it would be to paint various Scriptures on the floor to make these words the foundation of our home. You could do this on the wall before you paint, on the floor, on the bottom of the cabinet before laying shelf paper, etc...
As I was doing it, I was secretly thinking about the family that would own this home after me. We hope to live in this home for a very long time, but there will be a day when I don't live here whether I live in another home or have just moved to Heaven. When they need to replace the floor - there will be a visible testimony of God's presence in this home and who knows what that testimony could do in their lives.
Here are the verses I chose:
Entry way: I Thessalonians 1:1c, "Grace and peace to you."
Living Room: Joshua 24:15b, "But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord."
Bedroom 1 (now Emily's room): Psalm 127:3, "Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children are a reward from Him."
Bedroom 2 (now Rachel's room): Matthew 25:40, "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"
Dining Room: Psalm 119:103, "How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth."
Kitchen: Titus 2:4-5, "Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the Word of God."
Master Bedroom: I Corinthians 13:4-8a, "Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
