Salt Challenge: Home

This is my second post today, please scroll down for Jana's Birthday Hop!

The topic for today's Salt Challenge comes from Ruth and is Home. What makes one and how does Jesus make mine different to other homes.  What a great question!  Please take a minute to read Ruth's post on the Salt blog and look at the beautiful projects that the design team prepared.
As I thought about this a few things came to mind, the verses about my household serving the Lord, and on the Christian's job to be salt and light, but in the end I chose I Cor. 10:31 for my ATC.  "Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."  Probably most people are familiar with this catechism question, "What is the chief end of man?" Answer: "To glorify God and enjoy Him forever."  Our highest duty, whether at home, work, school, or wherever is to bring glory to God.

Everything we do in our house to make it a home should be toward this end.  As John Piper puts it, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him!"

My ATC is fairly simple, I used sunburst paper from Scenic Route and added a bit of stitching with some DMC thread.  The verse was printed and then die cut using a Spellbinders ribbon slide tag.

Have a wonderful day!

Cardstock:  Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper: Grafton (Scenic Route), Stamps: flourish from Take Note (Papertrey Ink), Ink: Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Accessories:  Swarovski crystal, Spellbinders die, Summer Sunrise Ribbon (Papertrey Ink), Tag corner punch
