“Mid pleasures and palaces
Though oft I may roam,
Be it ever so humble,
There’s no place like home.”
– John Howard Payne
God created two great institutions throughout history – the family and the church. It all starts with the family. What happens in the home is everything. Indeed, “there’s no place like home.”
You have two choices. You can build your home your own way, or you can ask God to build your home. We know what the Bible says: “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it” (Psalm 127:1).
Who is building your home? Are you building it with your best efforts, calculated strategies, and personal ingenuity? Or are you asking for God’s help, God’s blessing, and God’s leadership? You can build it yourself, but know this: your work will be in vain.
Recovery Step: Ask God to build your home.
