The Bible on your house

What does the Bible say about the physical place where you live?  If you're in the midst of shopping for a house, not as much as you might hope.  What's there is still instructional, but actually more about the home you make out of the physical house you live in...

Make your home a place where God is remembered.

A righteous home has a way better chance of lasting than a wicked one.

Seek wisdom for a solid home.

Don't validate yourself with your (big) house.  It won't work.

Take care of your relationship with God first, your home (especially a luxurious one) should be a lower priority

Looks like a good starting list for me.  Scripture references here: Deuteronomy 6:9, 11:20; Proverbs 3:33, 14:11, 24:3; Ecclesiastes 2:4; Haggai 1:1-11
