Run of the House?
It is an interesting question, don't you think? We can allow all sorts of things or people to have the run of our houses, our lives, our work and even our faith. But, who should really be in charge. Listen to what Paul says in Colossians:
"Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other…. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.” – Colossians 3:15 (MSG)
Don't you like those words? Paul urges us to let the Words of Jesus have the run of our house. In other words, let Christ be in charge and allow His words to be the guiding principles in your family.
Worth thinking about?
I think so.
