Read Psalm 127:1
Talk about the fact that, for our home to be awesome, we have to build it God’s way. If we build it our way, it will not last. Only with God building our house it will be a happy home.
Walk through the house and have the kids share what could they do to help each room in the house to be a happy place. It’s important that the adult shares first to set the example of the kind of answers you are looking for.
We started with the dinning room, we said things like: proper manners at the dinner table; no talking over each other; no shouting, etc., will make the dinning room a room pleasing to God when we are in it. Next, we went to the bedrooms, they shared things like: cleaning the bedroom so we talk about what’s one specific thing they could do in the bedroom to make it be more clean everyday, and so on. It is a fun activity.
Week focus: Talk during dinner about how did we help the house be more pleasing to God today.
