What’s on Your Refrigerator Door?

Write them on your doors.
    —Deuteronomy 6:9

Anthropologist Anthony Graesch, co-author of Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century, says your refrigerator door reveals what is important to you. The thirty-two families these researchers studied had an average of fifty-five objects on their fridge doors—everything from family photos to the plumber’s number.

Here’s a short list of thoughts that might be worthy of a Post-it note on your refrigerator door:

“Don’t go to bed angry” (Eph 4:26).

“Be kind and loving to each other, and forgive each other” (Eph 4:32).

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger” (Prv 15:1).

“Love is patient and kind . . . it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful” (1 Cor 13:4–5).

Life is too short to waste time fussing.
