How cool is your home?
I’m not talking weather. I’m talking about the quality and level of peace in your family relationships.
I’ll admit, there were days that I’d be carrying a bag of guilt and hurt feelings from a disagreement with Dirk. Or I’d be steamed because of the attitude of one of my children. But, I learned that my attitude filtered down into the hearts and attitudes of my children. And they acted out from the mood and tone I would set for the day.
I learned that the environment of my home began with the level of peace in my heart.
God wants us to be peacemakers. We are the ones who set the thermostat of our family’s day.
What’s the temperature in your heart, in your home?
Phil 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NAS)
