Speak kindly: It’s amazing how a little kindness goes a long way to setting the tone for the home.
Gather regularly: For meals. For prayer. To simply hang out with each other. Enjoy your togetherness.
Laugh readily: Joke and play. Be ready to have a good time with one another. Lighten one another’s load with a good laugh.
Work cheerfully: It seems there’s always a job to be done. So why not make the most of it? Do all things without complaining and disputing.(Phil. 2:14).
Give generously Of your time and your possessions. The home is a place full of all kinds of giving opportunities.
Forgive quickly: Don’t waste time nursing a grudge. Let it go right away and get on with a loving relationship.
Hug freely: Give your little ones a squeeze. Wrap your arms around your big kids. Your spouse could probably use one too!
Pray frequently: Ask God to bring peace into your home. Lift up the needs of the day. Seek Him for wisdom when you’re stumped (or even when you’re not).
Cheer loudly: Let your family know you’re behind them. All the way. Offer your enthusiastic support. Who doesn’t need to hear a warm cheer now and then?
Love genuinely: Seems obvious, I know. But sometimes we forget how powerful love can be in our home. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘”love will cover a multitude of sins.’” (I Pet. 4:8)
