Home by God....Christian Décor

Deut 7:26  Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

I have, often visited the homes of folks suffering tremendous difficulty, to see that they have invited the frown of God upon their homes by displaying cursed items in their home decor.

African tribal masks, Buddha statues, occult books or trinkets, Hollywood idols and icons, veneration of angels or saints...these are some of the things that are prominent decorations in some of these homes.

We know what happened to Achan in the next book, Joshua, for disobeying this command of God. He stole and harbored a forbidden wedge of gold, 200 shekels of silver and a fancy Babylonian suit of clothes. He brought the judgment of God down on his entire household for his misdeeds. 

In the sixth chapter of Deuteronomy, Israel is told to decorate their homes with Bible verses and things that remind the children of God and His law.
I have been in several homes of professing believers which show no indication whatsoever of the Christian faith. How sad!

If Jesus is our life, our breath, our all, wouldn't it stand to reason that our homes should reflect our beliefs?

Perhaps it would do us well to look at our decor and determine if our homes are truly Christian homes.
