ABC's of a Godly Home - Day T

Day T - Thirsty and Temple

Spiritual Challenge Day T - Thirsty. Are you thirsty for God? He says that if we will drink from His well, we will never thirst again. We are to be thirsty for God, craving His word as if we would starve without it. Your spiritual challenge today is to drink in God's word and quench your thirst. Take time to really enjoy it, to bask in it and be refreshed. Don't rush this, just enjoy your time in His word. (Whatever time of the day you can work it in, you know what works best for you)

Physical Challenge Day T - Temple. Today I want you to think about your home being a temple for God. Would it be pleasing to Him? Wait wait, don't freak out as you look around at the dirty clothes on the floor or the school books on the table. I'm talking about the atmosphere of your home and the influences you allow to enter it. Your challenge today is to take a good look at your home and see if there are things that are inhibiting your relationship with God. Are you allowing evil in your home through certain books or other forms of media? How about the attitudes in your home? Are they pleasing to God? I know we all have bad times but I'm talking about the norm in your home. Stop and look around your home, are your books one that would lead you to God or away? What about the movies you watch? Do you need to spend some time correcting bad attitudes instead or worrying about finishing math today? Ask God to guide you as you work toward making your home a temple for God.
