Our homes should be centered around saving our families, instead of being primarily centered around entertainment

Our homes are supposed to be centered around saving our families. That is their purpose. That is the purpose for which God committed children to us.

However, our homes are primarily centered around entertainment.

The Lord would like us to have time together as a family. He would like us to have delight in each others company. In fact, the full measure of the joy of family is something only he can impart, and indeed, he desires that we all lived so that he could bestow it.

But we are not obeying the sacred commandments regarding family, and our homes are centered about entertainment.

And so it is no surprise that our church has become centered around entertainment. We have super Saturdays. Our youth go to activities. It is entertainment, not instruction, nor meaningful service. The church activities, to our shame, reflect our homes.

Let us put our houses in order. Let us make saving our family the central purpose of our home.
