This Easter, resolve to make the Lord Jesus Christ the living center of your home. Be sure that every decision you make, whether it be of a spiritual or physical nature, be guided by the thought “What would the Lord Jesus Christ have me do?” When the Savior is the center of your home, it is filled with peace and serenity. There is a spirit of calm assurance that pervades the home that is felt by the children and adults alike.I think this would look different in every home. I'm still not sure what it means to my family. We are discussing, learning and praying. I think the wording of Christ being the "living center" of our home to me is especially interesting as I strive to think of things in terms of circular versus linear.
The best way to make a permanent change for good is to make Jesus Christ your model and His teachings your guide for life.
Before I realize that we had all the components of a Christ-centered home. We had prayer, scriptures, fasting, Family Home Evening, regular temple attendance, church attendance, tithing, service, etc. However I'm not sure that Christ was actually the living center of all of that. It was just sort of assumed. Sure we talked of Christ and we did everything for Christ, but I still think we were missing it. Christ was a far off goal in the distant horizon, He wasn't the living center of our lives.
Being the living center He is real, He is always present, always teaching and we are always learning.
Just some musings....
