The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
As I speak and write, I hear people make many statements about organizing—and often they’re the same things over and over. This is one of the most common:
“My house is such a mess I could never have anyone over.”
This breaks my heart. I address this very comment in my talk about party organization (Christian Hostessing). Basically, I share my opinion that:
- The people who love us don’t care what our house looks like.
- The people who are critically judging our homemaking skills… well, they probably need to get closer to Jesus, so we need to invite them on in and share our faith!
