10 House Rules for My Family

As J is reaching pre-school age in a year's time, and starting to understand conscience, morals, rights and wrongs, I am stepping ahead with researching some house rules to instill good habits.

This is a goal which I hope to implement in our home. We are not there yet, as we are self-centred sinners, saved only by God's Grace. It will take God the whole lifetime to perfect us, but this is what we are working towards prayerfully with J and as a family. Please pray for us and with us:

1. Practice J.O.Y. - Put Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last.

2. Be polite - Do not use any swear words.

3. Be responsible - If you use it, put it away before moving to the next. Use one toy/activity at a time.

4. Be diligent - Work before play.

5. Be kind - Always display kind words and actions, even if you have been mistreated.

6. Take initiative to reconcile - Never let the sun go down, while you are still angry (Ephesian 4:6).

7. Be gentle - Never raise a hand to hit, a foot to kick or an object to throw.

8. Show self-restraint - Never raise an eye to scowl or a voice to yell.
