Bless Your Home
"Then all the people left, each for his own home, and David returned home to bless his family." 1 Chronicles 16:43 NIV
What difference do you make in your home? David returned home to “bless his family”. Do you bless yours?
I know, your family loves you. You are the mother, the father, the brother, or the sister. Of course they love you, but are you lovable? Do they like you? Are you a positive influence on the health of your home? Do you add to its success, or take away from it?
I’m being quite serious! Think about it for a moment. When you enter your home, what happens? Do people get excited? Are they glad you are there? Can they expect to see a smile, hear a kind word, or know they can approach you in peace? Are you a blessing to your home? Do the people in your home agree with your answers to the previous questions?
Sometimes as a Dad, a job I thoroughly enjoy by the way, I find myself as the spoiler of “fun”. Sometimes I have to be that person; other times I am that person because I didn’t have a great day, or I’m not in a particularly good mood. There have been times, when I am taking the stress of life to serious, that I have to remind myself that my home needs me. My boys won’t be here much longer; they are growing so fast. I have to decide to be a blessing! (I know it is not much different for the Moms!)
David went home to his family...and he blessed them! Could that verse of Scripture have been written about you? Think about it!
