The Disaster Fad

Its impossible to scroll through your Facebook feed without seeing a blog post about the pride of a messy kitchen. Moms stating that they just don't have the time to see to their children's needs, clean their homes and care for their husbands. And other moms are rejoicing in this chaos. We are being told its ok to have a sink full of dirty dishes, after all, we are just too busy to deal with such things. By all means, neglect your home for some "me time" and that nightly glass of wine. We are becoming the Disaster Generation. 

Having a home that is a complete disaster is the new fad. Its hip to be messy and to complain about our spouses and children. How long does it really take to clean your kitchen? 15-20 minutes tops. How long have you been perusing Facebook or Pinterest while junior stays glued to his iPad? I'm guessing hours. 

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. Get off your butts, quit complaining and take care of your household!

There will certainly be seasons of your life that things need to be let go. The birth of a new baby, sickness in the family, its ok on occasion. Its not ok all the time. Let's hold each other accountable for the state of our homes. Stop bragging about how messy your home is and how no one in the house knows how to clean up after themselves. If you visit a friend whose home is engulfed in the disaster fad, be the voice of Christ to her. Help her see what it is that God is calling her to do and to be.  Don't allow yourself to be a sounding board for complaints. 

Let's be proud to be known as a generation who loved our families enough to be a source of joy and order. 

Proverbs 14:1 - "The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down."
