Romans 12:10 “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.”
Say, that reminds me of a bit of wisdom I just learned from a fellow homeschooling mom. Check out this wall in the dining room of her home:
Imagine the last time you (or your kids) started to bicker or complain to each other. That’s not a pleasant memory in my case. But imagine yourself responding with one of these phrases… wow! What a difference these kind words could make when inevitable squabbles start! I’m absolutely stealing this idea and devoting some precious wall space to it.
Because I want to live in a home:
- where honoring each other is the norm,
- where the forgiveness Jesus won for us is what shapes our life together,
- where conversation leads to servant-like love for each other,
- where we seek out ways to strengthen each other and build each other up.
How does honor show up in your home? How have you found ways to encourage each other? I’d love to know your ideas! Be sure to check out the other ABC’s of Homeschooling posts at 5 Kids and a Dog this week, too. It’s a week packed with wisdom.
