How do you create a Christ-centered home?

Each family may answer that question differently, but here are some
general characteristics:

1. Joy—Every family will encounter trials and hardships, but there is no
circumstance that can rob us of our joy if we know that the key
to our present welfare and future destiny lies in Christ alone.

2. Orderliness—As the apostle Paul says, "God is not the author
of confusion but of peace" (I Corinthians 14:33).

3. Grace—A Christian home should be a safe place to mess up.
Family members need to be reminded that love, not perfection,
is the goal.

4. Service—A Christian home is tempered and flavored with
acts of kindness, respect, humility and love.

5. Spiritual Disciplines—A Christ-centered home provides an e
nvironment in which every member of the family learns how to
live by studying Scripture, praying and spending time in God's presence.

6. God's Purposes—A Christian home is a place where the family's
goals are founded upon His values and the vision for the future
is consistent with His plan.
