Cleaning house – a reminder about forgiveness and righteousness

Physical activity

Get your kids thinking by comparing cleaning your house to cleansing your heart from sin.

Point out to your children that, just as it’s much more pleasant to live in a clean house, God delights in living or dwelling in hearts that are clean and free from sin.

Pray based on Psalm 51:10 and Matthew 5:8 and ask God to forgive your sin, cleanse your hearts, send His Spirit to live there, and help you continue to make choices that keep your hearts “clean” and free from sin.
