Talking Walls

History experts find all kinds of information from wall construction, wall coverings and more. They make documentaries on topics like this but have to imagine any supposed conversations that might have happened.

What if our walls did talk? What would they say about the way we speak to our spouses or our children? What might they hear when we discuss our neighbors, our church, our relatives?

Would we like them to speak up when Granny comes over? Would we delight in explaining the words we used about her?  When disease spread inside homes, God left clear instructions on how to salvage the building. 

The person must report mold to his priest, who then has the house emptied, closed up, then scraped down and if this doesn’t work, the house is torn down. (See Leviticus 14)

On the other hand, your walls can stand for something better. 

“As for you, son of man, your people are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors the houses, saying to each other, ‘Come and hear the message that has come from the Lord.’

(Ezekiel 33:30, NIV)
