What Does Your Wall Teach? {with free printable}

 

As a child, I knew what was important to my grandmother by what she hung on her walls. I knew, for instance, that kindness was important to her, because her walls spoke of it. She was not a christian, so she didn’t hang scripture on her walls, but the values that she did have impacted me. It also created an atmosphere that was reflective of the words she hung. My grandmas home had a warm and inviting atmosphere. She took care to make it that way. She was a good homemaker.

I have often reflected on these thoughts, and it has encouraged me to put care and effort into adorning my walls with beautiful words, words of truth. I have the privilege to make a home. With this privilege, however, also comes a responsibility. How am I making my home?

Don’t get me wrong, hanging scripture on your walls isn’t going to do a thing if you you aren’t living in the reality of the truths your walls proclaim. That is hypocrisy. Our homes should emphasize that which we live daily, not contradict it.

Without further ado, I would like to share my list.

7 Things a Truth Filled Wall Can Accomplish in Your Home

  1. It Assists Us In Teaching Our Children the Truths of God’s Word.

And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. Duet 6:6-7

They will see these words constantly while in the home. They will know what we value, as these words should emphasize the works they see in the home. Coupled with our “conversation” in the home, this will be the beginning blocks of the molding of their worldview. It will assist us in building biblical worldview for our children.

They will also provide conversational pieces, and reminders for the whole family as we interact with one another throughout each day.

2. It Will Aid Us in Memorizing Scripture

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Ps 119:11

Children (and adults alike) can memorize with little to no effort when the same words are placed in their paths each day for a significant period of time. So be purposeful with the words you choose.

I did not grow up in a christian home. My family trusted Christ when I was in my late teens. I remember though, learning John 3:16 by heart just from going to one of my aunts houses regularly. She hung the scripture on her wall, and I read it each time we visited. In a short while, I learned those words by heart. It also caused me to ponder the truth of them.

3. It Serves to Remind, Convict and Direct

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. ps 119:105

Maybe, just as I am about to say an unkind word, I will glance at the wall that will remind and direct me to “be… kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”  Or, perhaps it will serve to convict if the glance occurs after I’ve said the words.

4. It Encourages Meditation on the Word

“O how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day.” Ps 119:97

      5. It Can Put a Song in Your Heart

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching andadmonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col 3:16

In addition to scripture, why not display hymns and, “spiritual songs” as well? I display my favourite hymns, and I switch them up every so often. I love how affective it is in putting a song in my heart, and in helping me to admonish my children with hymns, and spiritual songs.

     6. It Honours God

The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver. Ps. 119:72

What we display in our home communicates what is precious to us. We can display beautiful things, maybe even silver or gold? I have to laugh at that one! Not going to happen here, but that’s okay, because I have something more precious. God’s law (word) is even better than hanging gold or silver treasures. Awesome.

   7. It Can Serve as a Light and Testimony to All Who Enter

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

With little effort your guests and neighbours will be exposed to the truths of God’s word. Hopefully this will serve to complement the testimony you already have with them, or are developing. Remember, “you may be the only bible some people ever read”.

So, what are some things you want your walls to teach? Please share.

Here is a free gift for the taking. I hope this can be a blessing in your home. After printing you can trim it to fit an 8×10 frame. Alternatively you can resize it to your liking.
