Family Rules

Family Rules

Family Rules I was in a store the other day & noticed a sign labeled, “Family Rules.”  As I read down the list of 11 statements, I was able to correlate scripture verses to each proclamation.

Here are The Rules on the sign & the scriptures that came to mind:

Help Each Other (Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens)
Be Thankful (Psalm 100:4 Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.)
Know You are Loved ( John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son)

Pay with hugs & kisses (2 Cor 13:12 Greet one another with an holy kiss)
Try New things (Colossians 3:23 Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily as to the Lord)
Be happy((Psalm 144:15 Happy is that people whose God is the Lord)
Show Compassion (1 Peter 3:8 be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another)
Be Grateful (1 Chronicles 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever.)
Dream Big (Matthew 19:26 With God all things are possible)
Respect one another (Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another)
Laugh out loud (Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance)

I was reminded that in this life, as we fill our minds with music, books, and media, we need to make sure that the things we think on reflect God’s truth.  I rather like that this “Family Rules” sign does just that.  I think it will look nice in my sunroom where I can see it every day.

Confectionately Yours,
