Living in a barn doesn’t make you a horse any more than living under one roof makes you a family. Being a like-hearted family is no accident, but it takes conscious, courageous effort. Saying “No” to things inconsistent with the heart direction God is leading your family takes strength and commitment. That is important, but far more important is saying “Yes, yes, yes” to what will draw your family together. Be prepared because that takes vision and determination. Be in the Word. Listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Follow Him obediently. “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:2-3).
