What a beautiful sentiment to ponder as they embark on a new adventure in a new dwelling place.
This got me to thinking: What makes a house a Christian home?
A Christian home is a place where there is genuine love for one another and for Christ.
A Christian home is a place where the Word of God is shared and perhaps even displayed through plaques with favorite verses.
A Christian home is a place where forgiveness flows from one to another.
A Christian home is a place where prayers are said over meals and at bedtime and at anytime.
A Christian home is a place where all our hopes and dreams are grounded in the good news from Jesus who comforts us with these words, “In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?” (John 14:2).
We know as Christians that our homes here on earth are only temporary, but our eternal dwelling place is in heaven, where we will join with all the saints in praising the name of our Savior, Jesus. May our homes here on earth give us glimpses of our home yet to come.
