Last night I was ruminating on Ariah's essay about houses, mortages, and the church. This morning I found an update at Seeking the Old Paths. We might not all agree on housing God wants for us, but we should be asking ourselves some serious questions. (And maybe, as she points out, listening for the answers in unlikely places!)
Will this house be more of a burden than a blessing?
Will the income provider have to work too hard or commute too far to afford it?
How do you balance living where you want with obligations to your extended family?
How long will it take you to pay off the mortgage without tripling the house's cost in interest?
Just some thoughts!
