What do you need to fix today? Is something at home leaking, creaking or squeaking?
In Proverbs 24, God lists one of the evidences of a lazy person as being unmaintained property, such as vines overtaking the garden or collapsed fencing. I thought of this verse recently and realized the gate on the chain link fence at my home had been broken for a very long time. Last night I bought a new one.
Our neighbors need to see Jesus in our lives. Unfortunately, instead they sometimes see an eyesore when they look at our property. That makes it hard for them to see much else. When we procrastinate on repairs the situation usually gets worse and our testimony with others deteriorates as well.
Take a moment today to see if there is a repair that needs your attention. If you are married, ask your spouse if they know of something that needs fixed, because keeping your home in good repair will enhance your Christian testimony and redeem the time.
