Friday’s List To Live By #83

Tonight, I’m beginning a series on Home Improvement at the Smoky Hill Church in Aurora, CO.

As I was preparing for this series I came across “Rules of Our Home.” Modified and adapted, here they are for your thoughtful consideration.

20 RULES OF OUR HOME

#1 We love God, obey Jesus, and follow His Word.

#2 We love, honor, and pray for one another.

#3 Mom and Dad are in charge. Period.

#4 We speak respectfully with one another, even when we disagree.

#5 Rules are rules – they are not general guidelines

#6 Life is not always about you, sometimes it is about others.

#7 You are not expected to be perfect, therefore, you may not expect perfection from others.

#8 If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything.

#9 When someone is sorry, we forgive them.

#10 When someone is sad, we comfort them.

#11 We someone is happy we rejoice with them.

#12 We tell the truth.

#13 We keep our word.

#14 If we make a mess, we clean it up.

#15 If we turn something on, we turn if off.

#16 If we take something out, we put it away.

#17 If we don’t know what to do, we ask.

#18 We do not hurt one another with unkind words of deeds.

#19 We take care of everything God has given us.

#20 When we disobey “The Rules of our Home,” we accept discipline.

How would you adapt these for your home?
