How would you describe the atmosphere in your home? For instance, what do you hear? Bickering, yelling, arguing, and angry words? Whining, complaining, tattling, or back talk?
The solution is Jesus’ Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (see Luke 6:31).
Living the golden rule at home starts with…
- Living the golden rule. Check your own heart and actions. What’s coming out of your mouth? How are you treating your family members?
- Setting some rules. Determine what behaviors are in and out. The goal is family love.
- Focusing on the importance of family. Train your children from Day #1 to be the best siblings they can be—sweet, helpful, kind, and encouraging. A family should be “one for all and all for one.”
“And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” (Luke 6:31)
