You don’t need more stuff.
More things will not bring satisfaction or peace.
More stuff will not make your relationships better.
Dealing with the daily conflicts that happen in your relationships will make your relationships better.
“Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.”
Proverbs 17:1 NIV
Peace never comes by ignoring the conflict but only through dealing with it.
Don’t stuff your feelings, deal with them.
Push through the uncomfortable space of it.
Be brave and talk.
Speak the truth in love.
You can’t do it on your own – you need God.
The peace that will permeate in your home is the peace starts with you and God.
Get your heart right with God then deal with the hearts of those you love and live with.
Do the hard work of communicating all the way through so that you can enjoy the blessed moments of life when you are at peace with God and at peace with others.
You don’t need a luxurious environment to possess luxurious love.
Don’t be passive with love and don’t look to possessions to solve your problems for you.
Look to Jesus to give you what you need today to break through and possess peace in your most important relationships – those in your home.
