A Christian home can be rich with many things indeed, but nothing compares to the home that gathers together as if it were a church itself and seeks out the sweet fellowship of one another. There is nothing quite like a home that joins together to open the Word of God to dig deeply to find the treasure that lies within. There is no more exciting conversation that what lies in a child's mind as he ponders over the wonders of creation or as he weighs the meaning of the cross out in his young mind.
Sweet fellowship among family members is one that cannot be replicated elsewhere. The time spent in the riches of worship, study and discussion are incomparable to anything else this bleak, dark world has to offer. This sacred time will be remembered as the child grows into an adult and looks back fondly upon his childhood to find this momentous occasion repeated throughout his memory.
There are a number of ways to enjoy the blessings of this sacred time and by no means should it ever become monotonous! Our family has engaged in everything from coloring pages to plays to role playing in our special worship time. If you think outside the box there are numerous ways to enjoy creative family worship times that will bless our households. There is only one component that should never change and that is that dad should always lead.
And finally, one last important word to the wives. Be patient with your husband regarding his leading his home spiritually. It is not easy for men to start new routines they are not used to. Be patient the way God has been patient with you in your spiritual walk and encourage him. The most powerful thing you can do is pray for him to be the godly leader God created hom to be. This takes time and patience...but remember always that the wise woman knew how to build her house.
"Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool, He is holy." Psalm 99:5
