The Mark of a Christian Home
Will be a house of prayer.
Will make Christ the center of everything.
Will be a place where the Bible is read and treasured above all other books.
Will be a place of worship, praise, and thanksgiving.
Will be a home filled with imperfect people who show the same mercy and forgiveness that God has shown to us.
Will be a refuge from the storms of this life.
Will be filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Shall we call our home a Christian home, and yet never worship Christ within our doors? Shall we call ourselves God's children, and yet never offer any praise to our Father? Should there not be some difference between a Christian and a heathen home? Should not God's children live differently from the children of this world? What mark is there that distinguishes our home from the home of our godless neighbor if there be no family altar? J.R. Miller The Family
